QUIE2T exhibit at the FET11 conference

Summary: 

QUIE2T was present at the FET11 conference in Budapest.

QUIE2T was represented at the Commission’s fet11 conference taking place from 4 to 6 of May in Budapest. An exhibit proposal that was submitted in response to a European Commissions call has been successfully evaluated and was among the 28 exhibition stands present at the conference. According to the commission, “fet11 is a unique conference on visionary, high-risk and long-term research in information science and technology. Featuring an exceptionally broad range of scientific fields the event will seed new ideas across disciplines that will reshape the future”.

In the same spirit as the Brussels exhibit one year before, the exhibit at fet11 brought some of the research highlights of the consortia to specialist and to non-specialist audiences in an interactive manner. The aim was to show the trans-formative potential of the fundamental research. At the same time we could attract the interest of young researchers motivating them to take on the challenges of cutting edge technological research. The presentations were interactive with minimal textual content, using videos as well as demonstrations that would give the audiences an opportunity for hands on experience of some complicated technology experiments. Such the progress in different strands of QIFT activities in Europe was demonstrated.

In addition, a project flyer that served as a press release was distributed at the conference.
