The European Commission’s Horizon Europe and Canada’s Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) are partnering to issue a call for joint EU-CAN proposals for research on quantum technologies. Each one will provide funding of up to €4 Million (about $6M CAD or $4.7M USD) for projects related to quantum communication, quantum computing, quantum simulation or quantum sensing. The expected award to each selected EU-Canada consortium is about €1.33 Million (about $2M CAD or $1.57M USD) for projects expect to range from 36 to 60 months in duration. The EC will pay their funds to the European participants and the NSERC will pay their funds to the Canadian participants. Additional information about this joint call for proposals is available in a brief news release and also a program description available on the NSERC website.
