QuantERA has launched its second joint transnational call (Call 2019) for proposals in support of transnational research in the field of quantum technologies (QT) on November 21st, 2018. Research funding organisations from 25 countries take part in the call. The deadline to submit proposals is the 18th of February 2019.

The call covers six main topics in the QT field:
• Quantum communication
• Quantum simulation
• Quantum computation
• Quantum information sciences
• Quantum metrology sensing and imaging

We have a call to publish the Milestone developments in Quantum information in the article entitled as "Milestone Developments in Quantum Information and No-Go Theorems". However the article cover such developments since 1970 to 2018. We are intended to keep the records after 2018 onwards in this article which will be converted in the form of encyclopedia for breakthrough developments in quantum information for theoretical as well as experimental phases.

Qubit Protocol is a decentralised blockchain enabled governance protocol that utilises the collective intelligence of the quantum science community to make strategic funding decisions on quantum technology projects. Projects place a proposal onto the Qubit Protocol and then experts and public token holders will be allowed to vote on the most meritorious projects to be funded.

Call for Award Nomination-deadline on April 30th.

European Physical Journal D, will publish a topical issue on Quantum Correlation. Deadline for submission is July 31 2018.

The purpose of this topical issue is to present both theoretical and experimental works addressed to investigate these concepts and their role in various areas of quantum science and quantum technologies. This issue is prepared in response to the challenges and visions outlined in the European Commission Quantum Technologies Flagship strategic document, and the commitment of the EC to support research in quantum technologies.

The launch of the projects funded within the QuantERA Call 2017 will be officially celebrated at the Projects’ Launch Event in Bucharest, Romania.

The event will take place on:

April, 24th – OPEN DAY (registration required)
April, 25th - Parties involved in the QuantERA Programme only

On 15th November 2017, during the ESA 2nd Workshop on Quantum Technology, a strategic report on “Quantum Technologies in Space” was handed over to ESA, represented by Franco Ongaro (Director of Technology, Engineering and Quality and Head of ESTEC) and the European Commission, represented by Jean-François Buggenhout (Deputy Head of Unit, DG CONNECT, European Commission).

Quantum software is recognized as one of the major enabling topics in the Strategic Research Agenda of the Flagship Initiative on Quantum Technologies. However, the writers and endorsers of this Manifesto feel that it is necessary to step up the efforts to optimally represent quantum software in the Flagship Initiative.

Do you feel that there are fundamental questions in quantum information theory which are not receiving enough attention? Is there a technical difficulty that you encounter over and over in the course of your research?
Those are not your problems only: they are our problems, too. Share them with the community and help quantum information science grow!
