Abstract: For the first time globally more than 80 Quantum physicist and experts from different European countries working in different disciplines gathered to discuss how to bring inventions to the market to complete the pathway of innovation. Discussions ranged from metrology, vocabulary, methodologies up to industrial specifications. Planning at an early state and incorporating standardisation is a crucial element for accelerating the market uptake of research findings. Putting-Science-Into-Standards (PSIS) Workshops is a joint initiative bringing together the scientific, industrial, and standardisation communities with the aim of anticipating emerging science and technology areas which could benefit from standardisation activities, thus enabling innovation and promoting industrial competitiveness. This year's PSIS Workshop on Quantum Technologies counted with the collaboration of DG CNECT and the EU Quantum Technologies Flagship (QT Flagship). Tapping into the lessons learned from the Graphene Flagship, concrete actions for addressing standardisation in the Quantum Technologies field were suggested during the workshop. These include the standardisation of a Quantum Technology terminology and the development of an EU standardisation roadmap for Quantum Technologies, as well as providing metrics and common benchmarks for measuring the performance of Quantum Technologies. Participants agreed that there is a need for more financial resources for the drafting of new quantum-based standards, and that this need is shared with the QT Flagship. An active dialogue between the communities of researchers and standardisers, as well as a continuous interchange with the QT Flagship through, for example, the Coordination and Support Action of the Flagship, will be beneficial for future interactions and cooperation.
