Quantum Manifesto – Endorse now!

A number of leading scientists and decision makers have initiated a Quantum Manifesto. This manifesto is a call to launch an ambitious European initiative in quantum technologies, needed to ensure Europe’s leading role in a technological revolution now under way.
All individuals from academia, industry and governmental / funding institutions are invited to endorse the Manifesto via this form at http://qurope.eu/manifesto. In the final version, a general overview of the received endorsements will be included.


About the Quantum Manifesto

This Manifesto calls upon Member States and the European Commission to launch a €1 billion flagship-scale initiative in Quantum Technology, preparing for a start in 2018 within the European H2020 research and innovation framework programme. It is endorsed by a broad community of industries, research institutes and scientists in Europe.

This initiative aims to place Europe at the forefront of the second quantum revolution now unfolding worldwide, bringing transformative advances to science, industry and society. It will create new commercial opportunities addressing global challenges, provide strategic capabilities for security and seed as yet unimagined capabilities for the future. As is now happening around the world, developing Europe’s capabilities in quantum technologies will create a lucrative knowledge-based industry, leading to long-term economic, scientific and societal benefits. It will result in a more sustainable, more productive, more entrepreneurial and more secure European Union.

Goals of this initiative

  • Kick-start a competitive European quantum industry to position Europe as a leader in the future global
    industrial landscape.
  • Expand European scientific leadership and excellence in quantum research.
  • Make Europe a dynamic and attractive region for innovative business and investments in quantum
  • Benefit from advances in quantum technologies to provide better solutions to grand challenges in such
    fields as energy, health, security and the environment.


Key activities suggested by this Manifesto

  1. Support growth in scientific activities linked to quantum technologies.
  2. Create a favourable ecosystem of innovation and business creation for quantum technologies.
  3. Facilitate a new level of coordination between academia and industry to move advances in quantum technologies from the laboratory to industry.
  4. Create a new generation of quantum technology professionals in Europe through focused education at the intersection of science, engineering and business, and by strengthening public awareness of key ideas and capabilities.
  5. Coordinate public investments and strategies in quantum technologies at the European level.
  6. Promote the involvement of member regions that do not currently have a strong quantum technologies research programme.

The supporting parties of this Manifesto, as listed in the Appendix, call upon Member States and the European Commission to implement the proposed actions progressively and to offer their support to help establish the European flagship-scale initiative.
