Call for proposals 2017 - QUANTERA - Quantum Information and Communication Sciences & Technologies QUANTERA-2017 Closed!


 The QuantERA consortium has created a common funding instrument to support European research consortia that engage in long-term research in the area of Quantum Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies(Q-ICST). Through this instrument, the national/regional research funding organisations of the QuantERA consortium support and join the European Union’s Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) agenda. By coordinating their efforts, they can support more diverse research communities, who are able to tackle the most challenging and novel research directions.

Submitted proposals should be of an FET-like nature and contribute to the development of the European research. The transformative research done in QuantERA should explore collaborative advanced multidisciplinary science and/or cutting-edge engineering with the potential to initiate or foster new lines of quantum technologies and help Europe grasp leadership early on in promising future technology areas.

QuantERA aims at spreading research excellence throughout the whole European Research Area.


Funded projects are expected to address one or more of the following areas:

  1. Quantum communication
  2. Quantum simulation
  3. Quantum computation
  4. Quantum information science
  5. Quantum metrology sensing and imaging
  6. Novel ideas and applications in quantum science and technologies
