FWF/FFG Webinar on the Quantum Austria Funding Initiative


2022-02-03, 14:30-16:00

On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF) and funded by the European Union under the Development and Resilience Plan (2022-2026; only available in German), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) are implementing the Quantum Austria Funding Initiative from 2022-2026. To do so, they are relying on a number of their respective funding instruments for personnel and infrastructure. A portion of the funds are earmarked for research infrastructure in the highly innovative field of next generation high performance computing, quantum computing, and their intersections.

The aim of the programme is to support excellent, transformative, and innovative basic research in the field of quantum physics, quantum computing, as well as next generation high performance computing; to ensure Austria’s continued competitiveness in the EU and globally; and to successfully use quantum technology for innovative products and services.

In a virtual information event, the specifics of the respective funding instruments will be presented by the FWF and the FFG. Following the presentation, researchers will have the opportunity to clarify any open questions.

The event is limited to a certain number of attendees, therefore registration is required.
