Research group: 
Quantum Technology at Queen's

On 15th November 2017, during the ESA 2nd Workshop on Quantum Technology, a strategic report on “Quantum Technologies in Space” was handed over to ESA, represented by Franco Ongaro (Director of Technology, Engineering and Quality and Head of ESTEC) and the European Commission, represented by Jean-François Buggenhout (Deputy Head of Unit, DG CONNECT, European Commission). The strategic report, prepared by a committee of 28 academic and industrial partners, identifies the state of the art and future strategies for the technological development of quantum devices for space applications. The report was presented in its intermediate form. It will be open to the community for feedback, based on which a final report will be prepared, whose delivery is scheduled for 2018.
