The US Department of Energy invites applications for its call on materials and chemical sciences research for quantum information science. This supports research for public benefit in materials and chemical sciences to advance understanding of quantum phenomena in systems that could be used for QIS, and the use of quantum computing in chemical and materials science research.
The total budget for the programme is USD $24M. Up to 30 awards, worth between USD $150,000 and USD $1.5M each for up to three years, are available.
Funding & Duration
Research Grant Awards are expected to be made for a period of up to three years.
