GROUP DESCRIPTION

The research group "Quantum Technologies for Information Science (QUTIS)" based at University of the Basque Country in Bilbao develops interdisciplinary research in Quantum Optics, Quantum Information, Superconducting Qubits, Circuit Quantum Electrodynamics, and Condensed Matter. QUTIS is interested in theoretical quantum science with a deep comprehension of the involved quantum technologies. In this sense, we are constantly collaborating with excellent experimental groups to confirm our predictions and models, and with an eye open for possible technological and patent applications. QUTIS is led by Prof. Enrique Solano and is formed by (from left to right): Laura García, Julen Simón, Unai Alvarez-Rodriguez, Guillermo Romero, Jorge Casanova, Enrique Solano,
Urtzi las Heras, Lucas Lamata, Antonio Mezzacapo, Roberto di Candia, Simone Felicetti, and Daniel Ballester

RESEARCH PHILOSOPHY

QUTIS has as a goal the development of top-level and influential interdisciplinary research with an international team of talented and motivated researchers. We aim at providing the best facilities, integration to national and international scientific networks, while keeping a friendly and competitive academic and research environment. Our PhD students and Postdoctoral Fellows are constantly driven by a research team spirit that stimulates their career build-up with creativity, efficiency, good humor, healthy ambition, challenging thinking, and hard work. We try to promote a scientific philosophy where seniority and intellectual hierarchy means horizontal exchange of ideas with respect and motivation.

FUNDING AND SUPPORT

QUTIS is supported by several institutions, as well as by numerous regional, national, and European grants. We acknowledge funding from UPV-EHU, Ikerbasque Foundation, Basque Government, Spanish Ministery of Science and Innovation, MICINN Juan de la Cierva Programme, SOLID EU Project, CCQED EU ITN Marie Curie project, PROMISCE EU STREP project, and IEF EU Marie Curie Programme.
