European visionary research in focus

Vice-President for the Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip participated in an event on the progress and future of FET Flagships.

The FET Flagships are large-scale research initiatives running over ten years with a total budget for each flagship of around €1 billion, bringing together partners from the scientific community and industry. 

Two flagships have been launched in 2013: one on Graphene, which aims at taking this carbon-based and ultra-thin 2D material with extraordinary properties from the laboratories to the market, with new products and applications; and the Human Brain Project, which aims at understanding the brain and creating synergies between neuroscience and computing.

A third flagship on Quantum technologies was announced in 2016 and is about to start, building on the final report of the expert group on quantum that will be officially presented on Monday.

Vice-President Ansip’s speech can be found here. See also his recent blog post on quantum. One of the other highlights of the event is the keynote speech by Nobel Prize laureate, physicist Sir Konstantin Novoselov.
