QUIE2T coordinator Vladimir Buzek has been selected to share his experiences about running a CA at the FET Proactive Information Day.

The Information Day - FP7-Call-9 took place on 18 Jan 2012 in Brussels and was attended by some ~250 people. The slides of the presentation are available for download from the Info Day Agenda.

The QUIE2T-sponsored international conference on Quantum Information Processing and Communication (QIPC 2011) was held at ETH Zurich from September 5 - 9, 2011.

The QUIE2T-sponsored international conference on Quantum Information Processing and Communication (QIPC 2011) was held at ETH Zurich from September 5 - 9, 2011.

Special events included the award ceremony of the (QUIE2T-sponsored) 2011 QIPC Young Investigator Award (see pictures here), an Industry Session and a 'rump session'.

The conference program included 30 invited talks, 70 contributed talks and more than 100 poster presentations covering a broad range of topics such as quantum information and quantum communication, physical realizations of quantum systems for information technology such as photons, single atoms, ions, molecules; nuclear and electron spins, superconducting circuits, micro- and nano-mechanics, hybrid quantum systems, and topical subjects including cavity QED, optical lattices, quantum memories, foundations of quantum information, and many-body systems.

The conference brought together scientists from 30 different countries. Participants represented more than 120 different universities and institutes including Basel, Berlin, Berkeley, Chalmers, Delft, Geneva, Harvard, Max Planck Institutes, MIT, ETH Zürich, Munich, Paris, Santa Barbara, Tokyo and many more. Also companies such as IBM and idquantique and funding agencies such as the European Commission and national funding organizations were represented. More than 60 participants are leading principal investigators with professorial degrees, more than 200 hold PhDs and about 100 participants are pursuing research toward their PhD degree.

The conference waS hosted by ETH Zurich and supported by the EU Coordination Action QUIE2T (Quantum Information Entanglement-Enabled Technologies) the European Integrated Projects AQUTE, QESSENCE and SOLID, the National Centre of Competence in Research QSIT and the City of Zurich.

The 2011 QUROPE - QIPC Young Investigator Award has been awarded jointly to Dr. Ronald Hanson and Dr. Stefano Pironio.

We are happy to announce that, by decision of the QUIE2T Advisory Board of Experts and upon approval by the QUIE2T Coordination Steering committee, the

2011 European Quantum Information Young Investigator Award

has been awarded jointly to

Dr. Ronald Hanson

For his experimental work on the coherent control and measurements of single spins in solids, and his proven leadership and independence through the successful establishment of his own research group;


and to


Dr. Stefano Pironio

For his theoretical contributions to the study of quantum correlations and quantum communications, concerning in particular device-independent quantum cryptography.


The Award, consisting of a diploma and 4000€ will be presented at the QIPC conference in Zürich, September 5-9, 2011.

On behalf of the QUIE2T Coordination Steering Committee, we extend our congratulations and best wishes!

QUIE2T has provided a position document as a response to the EC consultation regarding a "Green Paper on a Common Strategic Framework for future EU Research and Innovation Funding".

The consultation was initiated by Horizon 2020 - the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The QUIE2T position paper is available from here.

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.
