“Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University of Iași (TUIasi) - Partner
The “Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University of Iasi (TUIasi) is among the oldest and well known institutions from the country, having an important tradition in engineering, scientific and cultural education, with a distinguishable presence on the international level. The university caries on programs designed to continuously upgrade the engineers` professional skills imposed by the newly introduced tendencies at a global level. In the field of Quantum Computing (QC), TUIASI coagulates relevant human resources, both in the area of fundamental and applied research. The innovative solutions developed by the research group, based on Quantum Computing, cover applications in many areas: implementation of quantum algorithms in different environments, quantum image processing, quantum cryptography, etc. At educational level, the quantum technologies are included in the training offered by three master studies programmes, including a Cybersecurity track. Thus, TUIasi has all the premises to deliver a significant contribution to the Quantum Training and Education HUB (WP6).
TUIasi operates a modern Data Center and communication infrastructure that will be integrated in the Iasi metropolitan quantum network (WP3, WP5) and connected to the national backbone, with the involvement of certified systems & networks and cybersecurity specialists. Moreover, as a member of the Imago-Mol cluster, the strong collaboration with its members in the medical field will be valorised for the implementation, testing and validation of an advanced use case of secure communication of medical data (WP7) as well as for a relevant contribution to the communication and dissemination KPIs (WP8). In the past four years the research, innovation and technology transfer activities at TUIASI have been developed within almost 300 research grants and more that 450 research contracts with industrial partners. The innovation school of TUIASI (Iasi School for Inventions) has 40 years of tradition and produced almost 65% of the Romanian patents, leading to numerous prizes won by TUIASI at international innovation contests.
Thus, TUIasi has the proven capacity not only to carry out the work in the project, but also to contribute through innovation and technology transfer experience to stimulating the emergence of a quantum communication industry in Romania.
