Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes

About this event

Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes (QLCI) are large-scale interdisciplinary research projects that aim to advance the frontiers of quantum information science and engineering.  Research at these Institutes will span the focus areas of quantum computation, quantum communication, quantum simulation, and/or quantum sensing.  The institutes are expected to foster multidisciplinary approaches to specific scientific, technological, and educational workforce development goals in these fields.  Two types of awards will be supported under this program: (i) 12-month Conceptualization Grants (CGs) to support teams envisioning subsequent Institute proposals and (ii) 5-year Challenge Institute (CI) awards to establish and operate Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes.

This webinar will provide an overview of the QLCI program and will address questions submitted in advance.

How to Submit Questions

Participants may submit questions about QLCI proposal development and submission by sending e-mail to: QLCI@nsf.gov .  Questions received by March 8, 2019 will be given first priority for inclusion in the webinar.
