    A  total of 1 proposal  (CSA) was submitted under this topic.

     

Topic Description
Specific Challenge:

In April 2016, the Commission adopted, with its European Cloud Initiative[1], an ambitious strategy in the field of Digital Technologies. It was accompanied by a staff working document on Quantum Technologies[2], announcing the intention to set-up a Flagship initiative over the next 10 years. The present call topic is for a Coordination and Support Action to support the community in establishing the flagship initiative and its coordination with national activities in the field.

Scope:

Proposals should aim at coordinating the relevant stakeholders, notably academia and industry, as well as policy makers, addressing all of the following:

  1. Establish a communication platform for all stakeholders;
  2. Promote the objectives of the Flagship;
  3. Facilitate connections between industry and academia;
  4. Help shaping the Flagship Initiative during and beyond H2020;
  5. Organize outreach events;
  6. Facilitate dialogue between all stakeholders (policy, industry, academia);
  7. Help the networking of respective national and international activities in the field.

It is expected that such an activity is driven by the relevant actors of the field including both academia and industry.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 0.5 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.The indicative duration of the Coordination and Support Action is from 12 to 18 months.

Expected Impact:

The following impacts are expected to be addressed:

  • A goal-driven, federated effort towards a challenging scientific and technological vision to generate European scientific leadership in Quantum Technologies, and a strong potential for longer term technological innovation and economic exploitation.
  • Involvement and commitment from key stakeholders.
  • Increased transnational collaboration on quantum technologies between the relevant European initiatives in the field.
  • Spreading of excellence on quantum technologies across Europe.
  • Increased awareness of European activities in Quantum Technologies.

  6. Additional provisions:

    Horizon 2020 budget flexibility
    Classified information

     
  7. Open access must be granted to all scientific publications resulting from Horizon 2020 actions, and proposals must refer to measures envisaged. Where relevant, proposals should also provide information on how the participants will manage the research data generated and/or collected during the project, such as details on what types of data the project will generate, whether and how this data will be exploited or made accessible for verification and re-use, and how it will be curated and preserved.

    This topic participates per default in the open access to research data pilot which aims to improve and maximise access to and re-use of research data generated by projects:

    - The pilot applies to the data needed to validate the results presented in scientific publications. Additionally, projects can choose to make other data available for open access and need to describe their approach in a Data Management Plan

    (to be provided within six months after the project start).

    - Note that the evaluation phase proposals will not be evaluated more favourably because they are part of the Pilot, and will not be penalised for opting out of the Pilot.

    - Projects can at any stage opt-out of the pilot.

    The legal requirements for projects participating in this pilot are in the article 29.3 of the Model Grant Agreement.
    Further information on the Open Research Data Pilot is made available in the H2020 Online Manual.
