SQC recommendations for the allocation of public funding in 2025-2028

The Swiss Quantum Commission (SQC) has formulated recommendations for the use of public funding in the area of quantum research and innovation over the time period of 2025 to 2028. In line with the scope of the Swiss Quantum Initiative (SQI), the recommendations are formulated with a view along the quantum value chain, from basic scientific research to societal and industrial applications. Values in in the attached document may be subject to change depending on the ongoing planning financial processes of the Confederation.

Considerations for a new quantum research call

In dialogue with the quantum research communities, the SQC has formulated strategic considerations for a new call for research projects on quantum science and technology. The call is conducted by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).

Aiming specifically at a new call to be launched for research projects in 2023 and 2024, the attached document does not intend to provide a comprehensive vision for the future Swiss quantum landscape. Neither is it a strategy document for further activities within the SQI beyond this call. The Commission will deliberate on the strategic agenda for the SQI and develop it, step by step, in an ongoing dialogue with stakeholders in the research community and beyond.

With a view on already running and initiated quantum programs, the SQC acknowledges the important contributions to quantum research and innovation within Switzerland to date and would like to further strengthen these developments with a new call.
