300 Millionen Euros Initiative for Quantum Computing in Germany

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will start a new strategic initiative for quantum computing. Germany and Europe have an excellent research landscape to implement its own ideas and infrastructure to commercialize quantum technologies. So it is cucial to drive the technological development, securing the emerging know-how by start-up foundings and fostering the collaboration with users.

Therefore, the BMBF will provide € 300 m over the next few years. The previous call for proposals ‘quantum it: algorithms, software and applications’ (German) with deadline in February 2020 aims among others the parallel design of software for quantum computing.
