The QuantERA Consortium cooperates with the European Quantum Technologies Flagship – an ambitious research and innovation initiative established in 2018 by the European Commission.
The initiative’s goal is to consolidate and expand European scientific leadership and excellence in the quantum research area, to kick-start a competitive European industry in Quantum Technologies (QT) and to make Europe a dynamic and attractive region for innovative research, business and investments in this field.
Since both QuantERA and the QT Flagship focus on the same field, there are strong interactions between both networks as well as some common activities. Mutual efforts focus on speeding up knowledge and technology transfers culminating in putting QT into everyday use and on bridging academic research with engineering endeavours in QT applications. Together with the Quantum Technologies Flagship, QuantERA strives towards the reinforcement of Europe’s position in the global quantum race.
