Meeting scope

The EU has taken the first steps towards the design of a Flagship program on Quantum Technologies, taking as inspiration the ideas from the Quantum Manifesto and a broad consultation of the scientific and industrial stakeholders. A this moment the Flagship is being shaped by an international committee of experts, whose goal is to create a draft of the scientific and governance documents, to be discussed at various European institutions.
