Quantum Technologies challenge in Occitanie

The Key challenge program

The Occitanie Region, through the Quantum Technologies Key Challenge, aims to foster the settling of a regional ecosystem around quantum technologies, building on the high level of expertise gathered on its territory in this field. The program around the Quantum technologies Challenge, supported by the Occitanie Region, lasts for 4 years, from January 2021 to December 2024. It develops around three main objectives:

  • Strengthening the manpower in the Region on the topics by cofinancing doctoral grants and financing post-doctoral researchers, in order to support the launching of new projects,
  • Supporting the development of new experimental platforms around collaborative projects,
  • Supporting education actions around shared teaching practices within the Region.
