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.
With a funding pool of €36M, QuantERA put out a 2017 call for proposals in the field of Quantum Information and Communication Sciences & Technologies (Q-ICST). The current QuantERA consortium is comprised of 32 organisations from 26 countries, including Science Foundation Ireland, coordinated by the National Science Centre, Poland.
Call launched on January 13th 2017 with an expression of interest (EoI) deadline of March 1st 2017. This call is now closed.
