In the framework of the Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme, the European Commission announced the launch of its new flagship initiative in quantum technologies in May 2016. Flagship initiatives are research activities addressing large-scale interdisciplinary scientific and technological challenges which, due to their comprehensive nature and volume, are implemented in long-term cooperation between scientific, industrial and social stakeholders and decision-makers.

Due to European, national and private funding, flagship initiatives involve international research cooperation projects with an annual budget of EUR 100 million in the next 10 years. The new quantum technology flagship is expected to encourage hundreds of researchers and businesses to engage in international cooperation projects across Europe.

The new call for proposal of the QuantERA consortium opened on 15 January secures funding for international research projects related to the flagship initiative. So far 30 research funding organisations from 26 countries have joined the initiative, including the National Research, Development and Innovation Office of Hungary: domestic applicants have access to a dedicated budget of EUR 300,000 in total.
