Scope

Quantum technology includes many layers of technology from the individual modalities of quantum information processing, algorithms and the use of quantum computers for a variety of applications.

The main objective of this call for projects is to support organisations as they develop quantum technologies that outperform or accelerate existing technologies and contribute to solving problems relevant to industry, science and society.

This call for R&D projects may include topics such as but are not limited to:

Quantum computing

In quantum computing, quantum information is processed digitally via logical gates similar to today’s general-purpose classical computers. The challenge is to regroup many layers of technology: from the individual modalities of quantum information processing to the algorithms and ultimate applications of these machines for a variety of use cases.

The main objective is to develop quantum computing devices that outperform or accelerate existing classical computers to solve specific problems relevant to industry, science and technologies where the execution of quantum algorithms could be beneficial.

Quantum simulation and stack levels

There is a need for quantum simulation for special-purpose machines, designed and optimised for applications. These quantum simulators are highly controllable devices that allow us to obtain insights into the properties of complex quantum systems or solve specific computational problems inaccessible to classical computers.

Projects are expected to find applications in areas as diverse as quantum chemistry, nuclear physics, material sciences, fluid machines logistics, routing and more general optimisation. Near term programmable devices and quantum simulators promise to increase the speed of machine learning, including quantum kernels and quantum classification schemes.

Quantum communications and cyber security

The objective is to advance quantum communications and cyber security in three essential directions:

  • Performance: Increasing bit rates, fidelities, link distances, deployment capabilities and robustness of all types of quantum communications.
  • Integration: Combining quantum communications with conventional network infrastructures and applications, security services, photonics and electronics platforms and ensuring compatibility with quantum computers, and sensors.
  • Industrialisation: Realising technology that is sustainable, low-cost to manufacture, offers applications with a clear cost/benefit advantage in several sectors and generates wealth and jobs.

Quantum sensing and metrology

Quantum sensors should provide the most precise, accurate and sensitive measurements in many fields, boosting the performance of consumer devices and services, such as medical diagnostics and imaging, high-precision navigation, earth observation and monitoring.

Quantum metrology (with validation, certification and traceability implemented by independent experts) is a prerequisite for successfully transforming quantum technologies into the market.

Your project should:

  • Demonstrate the potential to research or develop a product, process or service for commercialisation.

Recommended project size

Projects on quantum technologies may have low technology readiness levels and include both research partners and large industrial partners and SMEs to achieve both a high scientific level and market perspective. Therefore, you are encouraged to include research partners as well as industrial partners in your consortium and to develop a project along the value chain, possibly also including end-users. Consult the national funding details and eligibility criteria for specific information on partners.
