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 expected to be 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.
