Entitled Quantum Systems (forschungsprogramm quantensysteme), the mission of the research program is to take Germany to the top of the European group in quantum computing and quantum sensors over the next decade and to improve Germany’s competitiveness in quantum systems.
The 56-page report details how the BMBF is creating a common umbrella for successful research funding in photonics and quantum technologies over the next ten years. As the leader within the federal government for research policy in quantum systems, the BMBF intends to strategically and long-term promote technology transfer and the expansion of ecosystems in this area. The funding follows the mission of the research program: to lead Germany to the top of the world in the European network in quantum computing and quantum sensors in the next decade and expand Germany’s competitiveness in quantum systems. The aim is also to secure technological sovereignty and use the opportunities offered by quantum systems for a modern and sustainable economy and society.
