TheQuantum Initiative is one of the largest research and innovation actions launched by the European Commission to focus on the development of innovative and emerging quantum technologies.

Quantum’s flagship community is composed of scientists, policy makers and engineers from academia and industry, as well as future users of quantum technologies.

The main objective of the initiative, launched in 2018 with a 10-year mandate, is to prepare the necessary groundwork for the development, deployment and deployment of European quantum computing products and solutions.

The Quantum Initiative also contributes to improving the competitiveness of EU industry and stimulates global investment and cooperation in research involving more than 5000 researchers across Europe and beyond.

The initiative offers a wide range of services aimed at organisations in the sector, but also at all citizens interested in discovering the world of quantum technologies. Training opportunities and wider quantum computing curricula from across the EU are collected in a dedicated and easily accessible catalogue.

The Quantum Initiative also organises events across Europe, including trainings, workshops, conferences and research groups, and publishes the latest job opportunities in the sector. Resources and practical information on quantum computing are also available in a dedicated section on the website.
