European funding opportunities for quantum technologies

European-level funding

European institutions offer a wide range of funding opportunities for quantum technologies, from early-stage research and applied research (Horizon Europe programme) to infrastructure investments (Digital Europe programme). In addition, individual companies – especially start-ups – can receive support from the European Innovation Council and the European Investment Bank.

Below you will find a list of presently open calls, arranged by programme and sorted by deadline. This list may not be exhaustive, so you are encouraged to also check the Search Funding & Tenders ( page.

National-level funding

The European Commission and the 27 EU Member States work to ensure an efficient complimentarity of funding. The scope of quantum technology funding initiatives at national level is diverse and constantly growing.

To find out more about the quantum programme of each Member State, please consult the excellent Quantum Technologies Public Policies Report 2023 report compiled by the QuantERA initiative.

Alternatively, you can reach out to a national representative via the Quantum Community Network (QCN).
