QuantERA ERA-NET Cofund in Quantum Technologies
QuantERA is a network of 32 organisations from 26 countries, coordinated by the National Science Centre, Poland, supporting research in Quantum Technologies (QT). With a budget of € 36 M, including co-funding from the European Commission, QuantERA will support international research projects in the field of QT.
QuantERA answers the growing need for collaborative endeavours and common funding scheme within QT research, which due to its highly interdisciplinary nature cannot be confined to an individual institution or state. Through coordination of national and regional research funding programmes QuantERA avoids the problem of fragmentation of national efforts, encouraging transnational collaborations and leveraging Europe’s competitive advantage. Join call for proposals for international research groups operating in QuantERA partner countries will become the first step to further integration.
Launch of the call for proposals will be complemented by a range of additional activities aimed at stimulating cooperation within the research community, creating and maintaining links between academia and industry, building a toolkit on responsible research and innovation in QT, exchanging best practices, and engaging in a dialogue with policy makers about the design of future funding instruments. Altogether it will help in taking further steps on the road to unlocking the widely recognized industrial potential of QT in response to current societal needs and for the benefit of the public at large.
