A current EU project focuses on post-quantum cryprgraphy (crypto.
schemes that are secure in the presence of functional quantum 
computers). http://pqcrypto.eu.org/ (started 1st of march '15)

Some initial recommendations have been put forward:

The BetterCrypto recommendations to have all the mentioned
encryption schemes from the above document except for the (very new
- last and this year) post-quantum public-key encryption and signature
schemes McEliece and XMSS and SPHICS, respectively. We also do not 
take Salsa into consideration as it's not supported by TLS at the 
moment. Work on ChaCha20/Poly1305 (ChaCha20 being based on Salsa20) 
in TLS is ongoing within IETF.
