European Quantum Flagship Projects Launched – TOPTICA takes four

January 28, 2019

The Quantum Flagship is an EU initiative to push the development of quantum technologies and their exploitation enabling Europe to maintain its strong position for the wealth of Europe citizens. One Billion Euro will be spent over the next ten years, mainly for projects in four different pillars – Quantum Communication, Quantum Computing, Quantum Simulation and Quantum Sensing, as well as for Basic Science endeavours.

The Quantum Flagship and its projects were officially kicked-off with a festive event in the Hofburg Vienna (Austria) on Monday 29th of October.

TOPTICA is very proud to be selected as a partner in four of such large projects, one in each of the pillars: “QIA”, “AQTION”, “PASQuanS” and “iqClock” (Details see Press Dossier). The strong involvement in these challenging QT projects is a confirmation of our long-lasting relationship with the (quantum) scientific community, and a sign of appreciation of our product quality. Last not least, it reflects the trust in our internal research and development capabilities.

We thank the coordinators of the projects and the whole Quantum community for this recognition. We are committed to support the development of Quantum Science and Technology and do our best to make the projects a success story.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
