As part of the French Presidency of the European Council, French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (INRIA), with the support of the European Commission’s Quantum Technology Flagship, are organising an online conference QUANTUM AMBITIONS: Strengthening Europe’s leadership, which will take place on Monday 21 February 2022. The conference will serve to present and discuss European and national initiatives in the field of quantum technologies to build a European ambition: to meet scientific and technological challenges, to structure innovative ecosystems, to train and retain future talent, and to develop markets and uses. This event will bring together EU and national authorities, representatives of the scientific and technological community and industry from all over Europe.
In its Digital Compass 2030, presented last March, the Commission presented a vision and avenues for Europe’s digital transformation by 2030, with very ambitious objectives to be achieved jointly by the Union and its Member States. Quantum technology figures prominently in these goals, with the intention that “by 2025, Europe will have its first computer with quantum acceleration paving the way for Europe to be at the cutting edge of quantum capabilities by 2030”.
