QIPC in the ICT Work-Programme 2011-2013


The new ICT Work Programme 2011-2012 has been published, featuring QIPC as a FET Proactive Objective.

The new ICT Work Programme 2011-2012 has been published on the CORDIS website (a copy for download is available also here), and QIPC is contemplated again amongst the FET Proactive Initiatives. 

The WP features the objective ICT-2011 9.9 "Quantum ICT including ERA-NET Plus" (click on the tab below to read the full text)

As it can be easily seen by comparing with the QUROPE Research Agenda (see here) elaborated by the QUROPE/QUIE2T Governing Board, all the feedback that has bee provided by our community has been accommodated in the final Commission text.

The budget is probably a bit below expectation, being 22 million € in total (15 million € for STREP/IPs and 7 million € for the ERA-NET+ initiative). Notice anyway that in case we are able to get a 7 million € ERA-NET+ in the field (which imply being able to gather 14 million € invested in the field by National funding agencies) the budget would inflate to 36 million €. Work in this direction (through the ERA-NET action CHIST-ERA) is already under progress.
