In summer 2020, members of the QuantERA Consortium set out to describe the existing national public policies in Quantum Technologies. Each organisation considered the state of affairs within their respective country with regard to the following:

  • Funding instruments of the organisation;
  • Research priority areas in Quantum Technology;
  • Quantum Technology funding within the organisation;
  • Quantum Technology funding at the national level;
  • National Quantum Technology research community.

The above information was collated in the form of a factsheet, summarising the efforts in Quantum Technology research and funding at the organisation and national level. As a collaborative product of that process, a report has been elaborated as part of the Task 6.5, ‘Mapping the development of public policies in QT in Europe and worldwide’ within the sixth Work Package of QuantERA (Strategic Developments – additional activities).

The results of the inventory will contribute to inform researchers on public policies in Quantum Technologies in Europe, as well as the funding instruments and priorities within the relevant RFOs. Moreover, it will support the coordination of those public policies between the RFOs, the advancement of the QuantERA programme and of future transnational QuantERA calls for proposals, and the further development of the European Quantum Technology Flagship.

The report will be available to download in December 2020.
