The European Union launches its Quantum Technology program

After the Graphene Flagship and the Human Brain Project, the Quantum Flagship is the third large-scale research and innovation initiative of this kind funded by the European Commission. It started in October 2018.

The European Union kicked off the first phase of the Quantum Technology (QT) program, with the announcement of the first 20 projects financed over three years to the tune of 132 million euros (and up to 10 million EUR per project).

The QT project aims to exploit the quantum properties of matter to bring out new technologies.

The Quantum Flagship is one of the most ambitious long-term research and innovation initiatives of the European Commission.

The Quantum Flagship is a large-scale initiative funded at the 1b € level on a 10 years timescale. It consists in a coherent set of research and innovation projects selected through a thorough peer-review process.
Calls for projects are issued based on the Flagship’s Strategic Research Agenda, thus ensuring that all actors are aligned in the pursue of the Flagship’s goals.

The goal is to consolidate and expand European scientific leadership and excellence in this research area, to kick-start a competitive European industry in Quantum Technologies and to make Europe a dynamic and attractive region for innovative research, business and investments in this field.
