More than 100 participants attended the QuantERA Projects’ Launch Event, which was organized in Bucharest on April 24th, 2018. The aim of the event was to gather the representatives of the 26 QuantERA-funded projects, European Commission, research funders and quantum community.

The meeting was hosted by UEFISCDI – a research funding organisation from Romania and QuantERA partner institution.

During the event the participants could hear about the quantum technology research landscape in Europe and recent developments within the Quantum Flagship. Two panel discussions provided the audience with valuable insights into the topics of Fostering Industry Connections and Promoting Inclusiveness in the field of quantum technology research. The results of the discussions will lay the foundations for further activities of the QuantERA Programme.

All 26 QuantERA-funded projects were presented during the scientific and poster sessions which formed the key part of the event and provided ground for engaging discussions which exceeded the timeframe of the meeting.

On the second day of the event the participants focused on the topics of Responsible Research and Innovation in QT and clarified further proceedings within the QuantERA-funded projects.

On behalf of the whole QuantERA Consortium we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants for their active engagement and valuable insights!
