The European Commission announced it has launched the Quantum Technologies Flagship. The QTF is a 1 billion euro initiative created to fund more than 5,000 quantum technology researchers over the next 10 years in order to make Europe a leader in the space. Researchers will work to use quantum technology to make advances in areas such as telecommunications, cryptography and computing. Citizens may be able to benefit from quantum technology through improved security of their digital data. "The Quantum Technologies Flagship project is part of our ambition to consolidate and expand Europe's scientific excellence," European Commission Vice President for the Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip said. "If we want to unlock the full potential of quantum technologies, we need to develop a solid industrial base making full use of our research."
