QT in Europe

In 2018, the flagship was launched to accelerate the development of quantum technologies in the EU , “the foundation of the next generation of quantum computer.” Indeed, Europe wants to be the leader of the second quantum revolution.

The long-term horizon is a “Quantum Web”: Quantum computers, simulators and sensors interconnected via quantum networks distributing information and quantum resources such as coherence and entanglement.

On the corresponding time scale – which is in fact longer than 10 years – the performance increase resulting from Quantum Technologies will yield unprecedented computing power, guarantee data privacy and communication security, and provide ultra-high precision synchronization and measurements for a range of applications available to everyone locally and in the cloud.

The SIRTEQ project, through its members who are involved in several European committees interested in quantum technologies, plays a major role, at a time when massive investments in quantum technologies are made not only at European level, but also around the world, especially in the United States and China. This role is confirmed by the excellent results obtained during the call QT flagship and Eranet. Indeed, our DIM achieved excellent results in the Flagship call on Quantum Technologies. Out of the 20 projects selected in the main list (139 submitted), 11 include French teams, and 8 SIRTEQ teams: ASTERIQS, CiViQ, MACQSIMAL, PASQuanS, PhoQuS, QIA, Qombs, SQUARE, as well as support and coordination (CSA) QFlag. The results of our DIM have also been excellent in the QuantERA call (Eranet on quantum technologies) in 2017: 12 projects of the SIRTEQ teams were selected from 26 projects in total in Europe, including 4 in coordination: CEBBEC, HiPhoP, NAQUAS, TAIOL, and 8 in partnership: InterPol, ERyQSenS, MicroSens, Q-Clocks, QCDA, QuantAlgo, QuaSeRT, and SuperTop
