QuantERA is a European co-funded ERA-NET (European Research Area Network) programme involving 32 agencies from 26 countries. The programme has a budget of €36 million including co-funding from the European Commission.
The QuantERA 2017 call resulted in 26 collaborative quantum technology research projects gaining funding.

The 26 funded projects formally kicked-off at a launch event on the 24-25 April 2018 in Bucharest.
The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is delivering the industry participation task of the QuantERA programme.
Over the lifetime of the QuantERA projects, KTN will be working to inform industry and gain their interest in the 26 funded projects, creating an environment where industry can exploit outputs from these projects and increase the impact of Quantum Research in Europe.
