QFlag: Quantum Technology Flagship Coordination and Support Action
QFlag aims to support and coordinate the activities of the Quantum Flagship - the initial selected projects, and the quantum community at large - into the world-leading success that all stakeholders would like it to be – this will assist both the science to evolve as well as gathering and triggering the stakeholders to liberate quantum technologies from the lab and turn it into commercially successful products.
More specifically, QFlag is targeting the following five overall objectives:
1. Coordinate the relevant Flagship stakeholders and link the Flagship to national programmes.
2. Coordinate access to infrastructure, foster applications of Quantum Technology and facilitate the transfer of results to industry.
3. Increase awareness of QT in Europe, both with (potential) end-users and the general public.
4. Foster education and training in QT, both of students and young researchers and engineers, in the field of QT, as well as a “quantum aware workforce”.
5. Support the efficient governance of the Quantum Technology Flagship and monitor its progress.
In Geneva, we will take the lead in structuring the community and developing the Quantum Flagship’s Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) as well as promoting gender equality for the quantum technology community. The SRA is the roadmap for the quantum flagship that will outline the vision and allow us to track progress towards its ambitious objectives.
