Quantum Flagship Kick-Off Conference
Quantum Research and Technology in Austria
Quantum technologies are considered key technologies for the 21st century and offer ever growing potential for use in the economy and in society. As a research and business location Austria is determined to promote such interdisciplinary research further, realise its benefits and be part of European initiatives.
The Austrian Federal Government has specifically identified quantum research as a priority issue in the government’s programme. For years, this area has been supported by the ministry responsible for science and research, not least because Austrian researchers with their outstanding know-how are among the leaders in European quantum research. The event is the official launch of the Quantum Flagship Programme. In the morning, the research projects funded during the first round will present their plans for the next 3 years, followed by the formal opening in the afternoon, with speeches by representatives from research, industry and politics.
