Implications for European policy : issues for debate - Studie
Metadata o publikaci
Quantum Technologies are being promoted as part of the EU’s Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme that aims at turning Europe’s excellent science basis into a competitive advantage. Recently, as part of its Communication on the European Cloud Initiative [COM(2016) 178], the European Commission has proposed reinforcing EU action in this area in line with recent initiatives at Member State level, such as the UK Quantum Technologies Programme and the establishment of the QuTech centre in the Netherlands. The Joint Research Centre (JRC), in pursuing its mission to support EU policies... with independent evidence, has decided to study the implications of the emergence of quantum technologies on European policies. Through this study, the JRC seeks to indicate possible points of intervention to seize on opportunities and to respond to the new realities that the use of quantum technologies could bring along. However there are many questions to answer before that can be done, such as: What is the maturity of the technologies? Which application ideas open promising prospects for economy and society? Who are possible pioneer users? Will quantum technologies be competitive and how do they fit into current and future industry landscapes? Which are the initiatives at international level that may pose challenges for Europe? Which are the leverage points and drivers to promote progress and achieve benefit? Three generally-recognized application areas have been chosen as initial study cases: - Secure communications - Computing and simulation -Sensing and timing For each application area, the JRC is setting up interactive processes with stakeholders and experts to exchange views on the questions relevant to each area. Based on the obtained answers, the JRC will engage with policy Directorates General of the European Commission to discuss the nature and timing of potential policy interventions. In this paper, the 3 application areas are discussed so as to formulate the questions to be addressed and to stimulate the ensuing debate.
