QuantERA II Call 2021

Basic Information

Network QuantERA II
Website https://www.quantera.eu/122-quantera-call-2021-for-proposals-announcement
Aim of the joint call The QuantERA Consortium has made efforts to advance the Quantum Technologies (QT) field by addressing two main lines in a co-funded call under the following tentative titles: • Quantum Phenomena and Resources (QPR), where the goal is to lay the foundations for the QT of the future. The focus is on basic quantum science and fundamental physics, and the projects should explore novel quantum phenomena, new quantum theory, concepts, resources, and/or address major challenges that prevent broad applications of some quantum technologies; • Applied Quantum Science (AQS), where the goal is to take known quantum effects and established concepts from quantum science, translate them into technological applications and develop new products. These could be novel devices that are based on known quantum effects and that will serve a novel application in QT or devices that translate known quantum applications into products and industrial applications.
