Galicia Quantum Technologies Hub

Expression of Interest in quantum computing technology ideas and potential capabilities

Background information

CESGA is participating in the Galicia Quantum Technology Hub, an ambitious initiative promoted by Xunta de Galicia for the development of the Galician Ecosystem in the area of Quantum information technology, with a special emphasis on quantum computing and quantum communications.

CESGA is interested in exploring ideas and potential capabilities within the Galician ecosystem that can drive the development of Galician quantum computing capabilities and infrastructure. CESGA is especially interested in those promising technologies (that might not be well developed yet) on which there is an opportunity for Galicia to become a relevant actor in the mid and long-term. Examples of activities that fit in the expected interests are, but not limited to, research and development of quantum computers and quantum simulators, quantum computing testbeds, R&D laboratories oriented to hardware and software quantum technologies, etc.

For this purpose, CESGA  is launching a call for Expression of interest (EOI).

Purpose of the EOI call

The purpose of the EOI is to allow researchers, innovators, and institutions (public or private) with ambitious and impactful ideas to share information with CESGA. This information will help to identify key initiatives and establish strategic collaborations that can help to further develop the quantum computing ecosystem in Galicia. To facilitate this process, an external national or international expert assessment will be conducted. This assessment will enable CESGA to identify proposals that demonstrate research excellence and a high capability to achieve their stated objectives.

Who may express interest

The interested entities in leading a project must meet at least one of the following eligibility criteria:

  • Be an organization (public or private) of any size that is registered in Galicia or has a registered office in Galicia with activity in R&D.

  • A consortium formed by European public and/or private organizations with activity in R&D (with at least one organization from Galicia), in which the proposed activity is to be developed in Galicia.

How to apply

Interested parties are requested to submit an EOI form using the provided Response Form template. The template is linked below and should be sent by email as follows:

Email address: qceoi[AT]cesga[DOT]es

Each file should meet the following requirements:
