Insider Brief

  • Quantum Delta NL, in collaboration with NWO, announces that 19 Honorees have been awarded €10.4 Million in grants.
  • The awards are part of the second call of the National programme’s Actionline 1 “Research & Innovation.”
  • Categories include quantum sensing applications, quantum computing, and quantum networking.

PRESS RELEASE — Quantum Delta NL, in collaboration with NWO, announces that 19 Honorees have been awarded €10.4 Million in grants as part of the second call of the National programme’s Actionline 1 ‘Research & Innovation’. Quantum innovations in the categories of quantum sensing applications, quantum computing, and quantum networking were recognized.

“The second Quantum Technology call was a great success. The successful proposals are spread across various areas of expertise and of application of quantum technology, and they all feed into the three catalyst projects of Quantum Delta NL. Both the quality of the proposals and the success rate are very high. This is very motivating for the researchers and will significantly increase their involvement with QDNL,” said Servaas Kokkelmans, coordinator of Action Line 1, “Research & Innovation,” Quantum Delta NL.

This year’s awarded research includes a “High-Speed Quantum Key Distribution Transmitter with all-integrated Indium Phosphide Photonics” and “A spin-photon interface in silicon for scalable quantum information technologies.” Last year, 16 projects were awarded including a unique quantum simulator and technology to check the geographical position of a bank computer with quantum verification.

The goal of Quantum Delta NL and NWO is to realize the much-needed scientific and technological breakthroughs in the field of quantum technology. Quantum Delta NL has reserved a total of 42 million euros for the Action Line ‘research and innovation’, over a period of seven years. The aim is to strengthen the scientific basis of Quantum technology.

Just like in the 2022 call, PhD researchers could apply for a personal research budget. This measure was introduced to strengthen the basis for the Netherlands’ leading position in quantum research. Of the nineteen projects awarded, two are from such young researchers. Four of the 19 applicants awarded are women. We recognize these numbers can still room improve, and we are committed to putting resources into further achieving a better gender balance.

“I am happy that NWO has been able to honour so many good proposals and especially that two young researchers have also received a personal postdoc, in this way we make our ecosystem more attractive to young talent. The fact that four female scientists have received a grant is very nice and at the same time an encouragement for us and the ecosystem to become even more attractive, more proportionate and more diverse,” said Pieter De Witte, director research programs and IP, Quantum Delta NL.
