    The ERA-NET QuantERA issued a pre-announcement for its 2017 2-stage call on Quantum communication, simulation, computation, information sciences, sensing and imaging, applications and technologies. A proposers day in Malta on 16 February 2017 is foreseen. Swiss partners are eligible for participation and funding through the Swiss National Science Foundation.

    QuantERA is a new ERA-NET on quantum technologies launching transnational calls that covers 26 countries including Switzerland. The QuantERA Call will focus on new technologies facilitated by specific quantum phenomena such as superposition states, the no cloning rule, or entanglement to achieve new or radically enhanced functionalities.

    The call follows a two-stage application procedure (pre-proposal and full proposals) with a first deadline for the pre-proposals on 15 March 2017.

    Full details on the call pre-announcement is available here. A proposers' and information day will take place in Malta on 16 February 2017.
