Today the Quantiki team (from left to right: Jarek Miszczak, Daniel Burgarth, Piotr Gawron) celebrates the 10th birthday of the site. Meeting at Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, Polish Academy of Sciences, we discussed our achievements and exciting upcoming new features. We also ate an immense amount of tasty strawberries.

Quantum Communications for ALL (QCALL) is a European Innovative Training Network, funded by Marie Sklodowska Curie Action, that endeavors to take the next necessary steps to bring the developing quantum technologies closer to the doorsteps of end users. QCALL will empower a nucleus of 15 doctoral researchers in this area, across its 9 full partners, to provide secure communications in the European continent and, in the long run, to its connections worldwide.

Invited Speakers

This is a fellowship scheme funded by Aberystwyth University, the Welsh Government and the European Union. It is aimed at researchers with 3-5 years post-PhD experience and comes with a 3 year appointment. To be eligible, you have to have spent no more than 12 months in the UK over the last three years (0 months is fine!), and applications can be from anywhere in the world. At the moment, I am collecting expressions of interest only; there is a two-stage proposal involved in this but chances are quite good (last year's applicant was successful) .
