2018-12-04 Paris Atos, a global expert in digital transformation, has held its 5th Atos Quantum Scientific Council meeting in Bezons. The members of the Scientific Council made of universally recognized quantum physicists and mathematicians reviewed the two research and development projects selected for the "Quantum Flagship" - a one-billion-euro EU-funded initiative to develop quantum technologies - and acknowledged the European leadership of Atos in the quantum field.

European Union grants 14 million to Swiss researchers, fuelling the next quantum revolution with the research project HERO

Quantum computingAn ERC Grant is the most prestigious award for excellent European research projects. A team with three researchers from the ETH Domain had also applied for such a grant. Today, Gabriel Aeppli from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), Henrik Rønnow from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), and Nicola Spaldin from ETH Zurich, together with their colleague Alexander Balatsky from Nordita, Stockholm University, received the contract signed by the EU confirming the extraordinary 14 million euro funding. With this funding, they will join their expertise to look into the heart of materials. Using the large research facilities at PSI, they plan to uncover new quantum effects which up to now have been overlooked or could not be seen by previously employed methods. They will also design new materials with useful quantum properties. Such new properties could be of use for data processing or data storage in the future and thus become the backbone of future electronics for the benefit of our society. Read further...
