QUTECH-RO grant: "Developing Quantum Information and QuantumTechnologies in Romania", UEFISCDI complex project (79PCCDI/2018)
Project Director:  Radu Ionicioiu (IFIN-HH)
Duration: 15/03/2018 – 31/12/2020
Budget: €1.13M (5,287,500 RON)

QUTECH-RO is complex project (PCCDI) aiming to develop quantum information and quantum technologies in Romania, such that the Romanian community will actively participate in the Quantum Flagship. The project director (R.I.) is the Romanian representative in Quantum Community Network (QCN) of the Quantum Flagship.

The project has three strategic objectives:
(i) research: developing the research capacity in quantum information and quantum technologies;
(ii) education: teaching and training PhD students, postdocs and researchers to work in these fields;
(iii) dissemination: disseminate and transfer the results to society in order to stimulate scientific and economic progress.

QUTECH-RO consortium has 5 partners:
1. Horia Hulubei National Institute for R&D in Physics and Nuclear Engineering (IFIN-HH), QUTECH-RO coordinator;

2. National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics (INFLPR);
3. National Institute for R&D in Microtechnologies (IMT);
4. University Politechnica of Bucharest (UPB);
5. National Institute for R&D of Isotopic and Molecular Technologies (INCDTIM-Cluj).

Each partner coordinates a project from the common research agenda:
Project 1 Q-INFO: Developing theoretical and computational methods for quantum information and quantum technologies (IFIN-HH);
Project 2 Q-CHIP: Developing the integrated quantum photonics platform (INFLPR);
Project 3 Q-VORTEX: Quantum information with optical vortices (IMT);
Project 4 Q-LAB: Developing two research laboratories and a quantum source (UPB)
    (a) quantum computation lab: cloud programming the IBM-Q quantum computer;
    (b) applied quantum optics lab;
Project 5 Q-FERMI: Developing theoretical models for quantum computation with Majorana fermions (INCDTIM-Cluj).

Important outcomes of the project are the foundation of Romanian Quantum Network RoQnet and the participation of Romania in the EU Quantum Flagship.
