On May 4, 2022, the Federal Council adopted additional measures - in addition to the transitional measures already implemented since 2021 in the context of the Horizon Program 2021-2027 - including a national initiative to strenthen the position of Switzerland in the field of quantum.

The Swiss Quantum Initiative (SQI) is

  • coordinated and led by the Swiss Quantum Commission (SQC),
  • hosted by the Swiss Academy of Sciences SCNAT and
  • mandated by the Swiss Confederation via SERI.

Competitive research calls will be conducted by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
