QuantERA II (ERA-NET Cofund in Quantum Technologies) is a consortium of national and regional Research Funding Organisations (RFOs) in Europe supporting research in QT.
On 26 January, QuantERA II launched a Call for transnational research projects in Quantum Science and Technologies. 35 RFOs from 26 countries are participating in the Call, with the Croatian Science Foundation the most recent RFO to join the Call.
The submitted proposals are expected to be aligned with one of the two QuantERA Call 2023 topics:
- 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, concepts, resources, protocols, algorithms, 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 and systems that translate known quantum applications into products and industrial applications
A project proposal is submitted by a transnational consortium, which should be composed of at least three partners from at least three countries participating in the Call. Project implementation period should be between 24 and 36 months.
Full text of the Call is available on the QuantERA website. Criteria applicable to Croatian applicants is described in the document Factsheet Quantera – HRZZ.
Deadline for proposals submission: 11 May 2023, 17:00 CET
Croatian applicants may send their queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
