We examine links between the theory of braces and set-theoretical solutions of the Yang–Baxter equation, and fundamental concepts from the theory of quantum integrable systems. More precisely, we make connections with Hecke algebras and we identify new quantum groups associated to set-theoretic solutions coming from braces. We also construct a novel class of quantum discrete integrable systems and we derive symmetries for the corresponding periodic transfer matrices.
