As the landscape of national programmes and approaches regarding Quantum Technologies (QT) continue to evolve, QuantERA mapped and illustrated developments in this area for the second time. The report delivers a snapshot of the European policies, as well as funding instruments provided by relevant Research Funding Organisations. It can serve as a reference and toolkit for policymakers to shape the future development of QT at national and the European level.
The key findings are based on the results of an inventory conducted in the spring of 2023 among 41 members of the QuantERA consortium:
- 10 countries confirmed national funding programmes or strategies to support QT: Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
- 5 countries have strategies that are in various stages of development: Ireland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden.
- 5 countries have significant government-funded initiatives: Austria, Denmark, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
