NSERC-French Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR) call for proposals on quantum technologies
This call aims to promote collaborative research projects that address fundamental challenges and explore cutting-edge applications in the field of quantum technologies, specifically in quantum computing hardware and software. Through these joint projects, we aim to leverage the unique expertise and resources of both Canadian and French academic research excellence.
This collaborative opportunity with ANR is open to scientific challenges in quantum science that aim to advance the National Quantum Strategy (NQS) – Mission: Make Canada a world leader in the continued development, deployment and use of quantum computing hardware and software by advancing research in any of the following areas of quantum technologies or a combination thereof:
- Quantum algorithms/encryption, including post-quantum cryptography
- Quantum communications
- Quantum computing
- Quantum materials
- Quantum sensing
Proposals may also combine any of these quantum technology areas with other research topics in the natural sciences and engineering. Proposals that do not address the National Quantum Strategy (NQS) – Mission: Make Canada a world leader in the continued development, deployment and use of quantum computing hardware and software and that do not have a primary research focus in the above areas of quantum technologies may be removed from consideration; see the Important note for additional information on what to include in your proposal. Questions about the appropriateness of a proposal should be directed to NSERC.
You cannot use an Alliance International Collaboration grant to support secret or contract research.
Collaborating outside the natural sciences and engineering
Developing and implementing policies or directly applying your research results may depend on socio-economic or other requirements and scientific understanding beyond the natural sciences and engineering (NSE). You are encouraged to collaborate with academic researchers in fields other than the NSE. Such researchers may be co-applicants if they meet NSERC’s eligibility criteria for faculty. Research costs for these collaborations can represent up to 30% of the project costs and must be specifically identified in the budget justification.
