Research and technology based on quantum mechanics has gained momentum and attracted funding from both the public and private sector in the recent years. This impacted also the Swiss large and vibrant research and innovation community in this field.
The future European FET Flagship initiative on quantum technology aims at harnessing and coordinating the effort at the European scale and will open new opportunities for the Swiss actors.
The Swiss Quantum Day aims at preparing the Swiss stakeholders to the FET Flagship, gathering researchers, companies and government bodies active in the field. The event will inform on the Flagship initiative and show Swiss research and innovation excellence. The interplay of national and European instruments will be discussed with contributions from the European Commission, the UK and the Netherlands.
The morning session will be dedicated to the presentation of the FET Quantum Flagship and the Swiss excellence in research and innovation in quantum technologies. In the afternoon session, the technology transfer aspects of quantum technologies in the private sector will be discussed.
