Four research teams from the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science of the Jagiellonian University are among the Polish winners of grants funded by the National Science Centre within the framework of the QuantERA programme for international research projects in the field of quantum technologies.
Fifteen research teams from Poland were among the winners of QuantERA Co-funded Call 2021. Ten basic research projects will be funded by the National Science Centre (NCN) and five applied research projects will be funded by the National Centre for Research and Development. The NCN has awarded funding of over 7.7 million zlotys for that purpose.
The third QuantERA Call was launched in March 2021 by 36 European Research Funding Organisations and has attracted a lot of attention from scientists at large from its very beginning. 39 international research projects were recommended for funding. The total project value is 43.5 million euros, of which 12.3 million is co-funded by the European Union.
The grants have been awarded to the following NCN-funded projects involving researchers from the JU Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science:
- Prof. Karol Życzkowski: Dissipative Quantum Chaos Perspective on Near-Term Quantum Computing; the project will involve research teams from Portugal, Slovenia, Germany and Norway
- Prof. Jakub Zakrzewski: Next Generation Quantum Symulators: From DYNAMIcal Gauge Fields to Lattice Gauge ThEory; the project will involve research teams from Spain, Germany, Italy and Switzerland
- Dr Adam Wojciechowski: Microfluidics Quantum Diamond Sensor; the project will involve research teams from Spain, Germany and Israel
- Prof. Jacek Dziarmaga: Shortcuts to Adiabaticity for Quantum Computation and Simulation; the project will involve research teams from Austria, Luxembourg, Germany and Italy
