QuantERA launches a joint transnational call on Quantum Technologies research


QuantERA launched its first joint transnational call (Call 2017) for proposals worth € 34 M in support of transnational research in the field of Quantum Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies (Q-ICST).

Thirty research funding organisations from 26 countries throughout take part in the Call that has a deadline for pre-proposals on the 15th of March 2015.

The Call covers six main topics in the Q-ICST field:

QuantERA Call 2017 Pre-Announcement


In January 2017 the QuantERA Consortium will announce a Call for Proposals in the field of quantum technologies.


QuantERA is a network of 31 agencies from 26 countries, coordinated by the National Science Centre, Poland. With a budget of over EUR 34 M, including co-funding from the European Commission, QuantERA will support international research projects in the field of Quantum Technologies.

9th Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter School: IQP – Integrated Quantum Photonics

2017-03-26 - 2017-04-01
Registration deadline: 
2017-02-28 (All day)
Folgaria (Trento), Italy

The Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter Schools are biannual meetings which address relevant arguments of Optoelectronics and Photonics. The School has the tradition to bring together a large number of PhD students and young researchers from all parts of the world who, in a one-week of an intense program, follow a series of lectures on selected topics. The lectures are held by internationally recognized experts in the field. At the same time, the students are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful location where the school is organized.

Point-like defects in solid state

Research Type: 

Our research group explores and builds on quantum effects at the nanoscale occuring in individual well-controlled solid-state impurities. We investigate the physics of individual emitters producing quantum states of light in various semiconductors and 2D materials, covering spectral ranges in the ultraviolet and infrared.

CNR-IFN, Single-Photon Detection with Integrated Superconducting Nanowires

Research Type: 

The Institute for Photonics and Nanotechnologies (IFN) is part of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), which is the largest public research institution in Italy.  Research at the Rome unit is focused on the development of superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs) integrated with advanced optical cavities and passive quantum-optics circuits on semiconducting materials. IFN-CNR exploits a 200 m2 clean room facility, equipped with a 100 kV Electron Beam Lithography system together with all the tools needed for micro and nanofabrication.
