FET Flagship on Quantum Technologies

by MajuLab editor - published on

Create the European ecosystem that will deliver the knowledge, technologies and open research infrastructures and testbeds necessary for the development of a world-leading knowledge-based industry in Europe, leading to long-term economic, scientific and societal benefits.

Scope:

A. Research and Innovation Actions

Proposals are expected to address a mix of quantum technology challenges addressing one or more of the following areas, integrating different aspects like physics, engineering, computer science, theory, algorithms, software, manufacturing, control, infrastructures, etc. Each activity should clearly move the technology up the TRL scale[2]. For areas a. to d., proposals can integrate various activities covering the whole value chain, from fundamental to applied research, and with other types of activity, including demonstrators, etc., as appropriate.

  • a. Quantum Communication
  • b. Quantum Computing Systems
  • c. Quantum Simulation
  • d. Quantum Metrology and Sensing
  • e. Fundamental science

B. Coordination and Support Action

Proposals should aim at coordinating the relevant stakeholders, notably academia, RTOs and industry participating in the Flagship initiative. In particular, it is expected to establish a communication platform, facilitate dialogue, promote the objectives of the Flagship and monitor the progress, support the governance structure, organize outreach events (including addressing the impact of technology development on economy and society), identify training and education needs and promote European curricula in quantum engineering, identify and coordinate relevant standardisation, IPR actions, and international collaboration and help networking of respective national and international activities in the field. The action will also identify, together with the community, benchmarks for all communication/computing/simulation platforms selected under areas a. to c. of the Research and Innovation Actions described under item A. above.

Expected Impact:

A. Research and Innovation Actions

  • Contribute to the strategic objectives of the Flagship;
  • Expand European leadership and excellence in quantum technologies;
  • Scientific breakthroughs that form the basis for future technologies;
  • Synergetic collaboration with existing European platforms and infrastructures;
  • Kick-start a competitive European quantum industry;
  • Availability of open platforms and infrastructures accessible to the European Quantum technologies Community.

B. Coordination and Support Action

  • A well-coordinated European initiative on Quantum Technologies, involving all relevant stakeholders and linked with relevant international, national and regional programmes, while assuring an efficient support to the governance of the Flagship;
  • Spreading of excellence on Quantum Technologies across Europe, increased awareness of European activities and availability of European curricula in the field.
