Europe has strong expertise in Quantum Technologies (QT) development, hosting world-leading researchers from Basic Science to all QT scientific domains: Quantum Sensing and Metrology, Quantum Communication, Quantum Computing and Quantum Simulation.
The InCoQFlag project aims at identifying the win-win situations in terms of collaborations with countries investing massively in Quantum, such as the United States of America, Canada and Japan. Combining the same level forces to reach critical mass to cope with targeted challenges, or selecting complementary competencies to investigate the same objective, are two different approaches to international collaborations.
The consortium is exploring types of collaboration that would help Europe structure the best framework for the development of quantum technologies, which would benefit economic value creation and the research community as a whole.
Sharing technologies, infrastructures, skills and knowledge with international partners are key steps in building win-win collaborations.
To reach this target, InCoQFlag will organize within the next three years, several workshops and networking sessions between EU and non-EU academia and industry stakeholders, as part of the international collaboration meetings side events.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 952223.
