The main objective of the QuantERA Consortium is to launch transnational co-funded calls for proposals that will contribute to further integration of European research in Quantum Technologies. So far, calls in 2017 and 2019 attracted over 1500 research teams to apply, with more than 4500 individual researchers from all over the world. QuantERA recommended 26 excellent international proposals for funding in Call 2017 and 12 in Call 2019.
Selected projects aim, in particular, to develop novel physical platform for quantum communication, sensing and computing, advance architectures and algorithms for future quantum information processing systems, and push for hardware scalability. Research results are expected to address a number of societal challenges, such as cybersecurity and healthcare.
