Success of Polish researchers in the QuantERA Call 2017


Thursday, 23 November 2017

QuantERA Consortium is pleased to announce the results of the QuantERA Call 2017. Thanks to joint funding provided by the European Union and QuantERA member organisations, the list of projects recommended for funding includes 26 excellent international proposals in the field of quantum technology research:

  • Quantum communication
  • Quantum simulation
  • Quantum computation
  • Quantum information sciences
  • Quantum metrology sensing and imaging

Polish researchers will be involved in 9 of 26 awarded projects (incl. one financed by NCBR) and total their budget sums up to over EUR 1,7 M:

  • InterPol: Polariton lattices: a solid-state platform for quantum simulations of correlated and topological states with the participation of dr. hab. Michał Matuszewski from Institute of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences;
  • NAQUAS: Non-equilibrium dynamics in Atomic systems for QUantum Simulation with the participation of prof. dr. hab. Jacek Dziarmaga from the Jagiellonian University in Kraków;
  • ORQUID: ORganic QUantum Integrated Devices (funded by NCBR) with the participation of prof. dr hab. Bolesław Kozankiewicz from Institute of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences;
  • Q-Clocks: Cavity-Enhanced Quantum Optical Clocks with the participation of dr. hab. Michał Zawada from Institute of Physics of Mikołaj Kopernik University in Toruń;
  • QTFLAG: Quantum Technologies For LAttice Gauge theories with the participation of prof. dr. hab. Jakub Zakrzewski from the Jagiellonian University in Kraków;
  • RouTe: Towards Room Temperature Quantum Technologies with the participation of prof. dr hab. Bolesław Kozankiewicz from Institute of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences;
  • Si QuBus: Long-range quantum bus for electron spin qubits in silicon with the participation of dr. hab. Łukasz Cywiński from Institute of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences;
  • TAIOL: Trapped Atom Interferometers in Optical Lattices with the participation of dr. hab. Jan Chwedenczuk from the Department of Physics of the University of Warsaw;
  • TheBlinQC: Theory Blind Quantum Control with the participation of prof. dr. hab. Krzysztof Sacha from the Jagiellonian University in Kraków.

The QuantERA Call, launched by 30 funding organisations from 26 countries, attracted 221 international research teams applying for over EUR 235 M. 

A QuantERA Projects’ Launch Event will be organised on 24-25 April, 2018 in Romania to officialise the implementation of the projects.
