1 min read

The National Science Foundation plans to support research efforts to further explore quantum science in the technology areas of computing, communications, sensors and simulation, the Armed Forces Communications Electronics Association reported Monday. NSF will help selected research institutes address quantum-related scientific, technological, educational and workforce objectives under the Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes program.

Research centers from nonprofits and universities will participate in the program over a five-year period. The program also intends to foster a multidisciplinary approach for research and development activities. Interested organizations may submit preliminary proposals through Aug. 1 and full proposals through Jan. 2, 2020.

The program is part of the larger Quantum Leap effort that aims for the development of technologies designed to help scientists observe and control particles at atomic and subatomic levels.
