QT Flagship

In 2016, a Quantum Manifesto was endorsed by more than 3400 individuals from academia and industry across Europe. The purpose of the Manifesto was to emphasize that Quantum Technologies are expected to play a pivotal role in future communication and computing infrastructures, and to call upon Member States and European Commission to invest in Quantum Technologies. In May 2016, the European Commision decided to launch a flagship initiative on Quantum Technologies. As shown in the image below (taken from the Quantum Manifesto), this flagship initiative aims at turning research results inĀ  areas such as quantum secure communication, quantum sensing, quantum simulation and computing into concrete technological opportunities that can be taken up by industry.
