Taking quantum technologies in Europe from the research lab to everyday applications: this is the aim of the Quantum Flagship research initiative, which is being officially launched today at a kick-off event in Vienna. With a budget of € 1 billion and a duration of 10 years, this is one of the EU’s largest and most ambitious research initiatives. It brings together research establishments, universities, companies, and political figures, while also supporting large-scale, long-term research projects. With over 5,000 researchers from academia and industry involved in this initiative throughout its lifetime, the Quantum Flagship aims to propel Europe to the forefront of quantum technology.
During its first phase, it has provided funding to 20 research projects – and OpenSuperQ is one of them. Project coordinator Prof. Frank Wilhelm-Mauch (Saarland University), together with other consortium partners from ETHZ, CHALMERS, UPV/EHU, ZI and EURICE, was at the Hofburg in Vienna to present the project and to meet the other project teams.
