France and Germany line up for quantum leap
Emmanuel Macron lays out a €1.8B strategy to slingshot the country into becoming a quantum powerhouse, as Germany draws up a €2B programme of quantum research as part of its pandemic recovery plan
The goal is to build a business environment around the country’s expertise and to keep the experts its universities nurture in the country. With these efforts, France has a chance to become "the first state to acquire a complete prototype of [a] quantum computer," said President Emmanuel Macron introducing the plan on 22 on January.
