The report of the workshop on Quantum Technologies and Industry was held in Brussels on 6 May 2015 has been published

A participatory workshop on Quantum Technologies and Industry was held in Brussels on 6 May 2015. The aim was to identify what could be the markets for quantum technologies, and how these could be industrialised. The workshop report (available here) summarises the discussions and the action plan which emerged as a conclusion.

Nominations for the QIPC Young Investigator Award 2015 are now open.

The 2015 QIPC Young Investigator Award will be presented to an outstanding young researcher in the field of Quantum Information Processing and Communication during the QIPC international conference in Leeds, 13th - 18th September 2015, http://www.qipc2015.leeds.ac.uk/

The award consists of a diploma and a lump sum of 4000€.

Important notice : Following a decision by the Advisory Board of Experts (ABE), the age limit condition is modified and becomes :

- applicants should be no more than 35 years old in 2015 (i.e., born in 1980 or later)

- this limit can be extended to 37  (i.e., born in 1978 or later) for special reasons such as compulsory military service, maternity or paternity leave, special medical conditions... Such exceptions must be thoroughly documented, and they will be examined on a case by case basis. There is no appeal on the final decision taken by the ABE.

Nominations, including self-nominations, should be submitted electronically not later than *Sunday April 19th, 2015* to the e-mail address: admin [at] qurope [dot] eu.

The nominations should include a short CV of the candidate (with birthdate), a letter containing a one page summary of the candidate's achievements, a list of key publications, and at least two letters of endorsement. The letter should be prepared in pdf-format. Candidates are encouraged to also submit an oral presentation at the QIPC 2015 conference at the University of Leeds, 13th - 18th September 2015.

The received nominations will first be screened by the QUTE-EUROPE management, and then forwarded to the Advisory Board of Experts to obtain an official recommendation. This recommendation has to be approved by the QUTE-EUROPE Steering Committee by a simple majority vote. In case no majority can be reached, the vote by the Project Coordinator will be decisive. There is no appeal on decisions.

 

Previous awardees:

2013
Dr. Fernando Brandao - For his highly appraised achievements in entanglement theory, quantum complexity theory, and quantum many-body physics, which combine dazzling mathematical ability and impressive physical insight;

and

Dr. Patrick Joachim Windpassinger - For his broad experimental work in the field of quantum information processing, and especially for his recent achievements in the context of magnetism and synthetic gauge fields, which stand at the forefront of exciting developments in quantum simulation with cold atoms in optical lattices.

2011
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

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

2009
Dr. Jeremy L. O'Brien - For his pioneering contributions to optical quantum information processing and quantum measurement.

2007
Dr. Michal Horodecki - For his remarkable overall achievements in the field of QIPC, and for the recent discovery of the quantum state merging and its implications.

and

Dr. Michael Wolf - For his recent groundbreaking contributions to the determination of quantum capacities of quantum channels, bridging quantum information and many-body physics, and to deep understanding of Gaussian quantum systems.

QUTE-EUROPE submitted a position document titled "Quantum Technologies in H2020" to the recently launched FET public consultation.

As many of you probably know, the EC has launched an online consultation to identify game-changing directions for future research in FET related technological domains. The purpose of this consultation is to initiate thinking about future proactive initiatives to be included in the next FET workprogramme for 2016 and 2017. QUTE-EUROPE, as was done by its QUIE2T predecessor for preparing the FET call topics for the ongoing workprogramme (2014-2015), has submitted a joint document on behalf of the whole community discussing all that can be done from the quantum technologies perspective.

The post can be read at this address, and in case you finding interesting don't forget to vote for it!
