QuCoM’s first review meeting highlights significant progress of the project

The QuCoM consortium recently concluded its first review meeting on November 20, 2023, achieving significant progress in the various work packages outlined in the agenda.

The meeting, conducted remotely, commenced with a warm welcome by G. Kregar, who initiated the session with an introduction and tour du table, setting a collaborative tone for the discussions.

Key Highlights of the Agenda:

  1. Overview by the Coordinator (A. Bassi, UNITS): The meeting delved into the comprehensive overview provided by the coordinator, Professor A. Bassi from the University of Trieste (UNITS)..
  2. Quantum Control (D. Braun, UT): D. Braun from the University of Tübingen (UT) presented progress on Work Package 1 (WP1) focused on Quantum Control. The advancements in this area showcased the consortium’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of quantum technology.
  3. Ultra-Precise Sensing of Gravity (T. Oosterkamp, ULEI): Work Package 2 (WP2) on Ultra-Precise Sensing of Gravity was covered by T. Oosterkamp from the Leiden Institute of Physics (ULEI). The developments highlighted the consortium’s commitment to exploring quantum applications in gravitational sensing.
  4. Quantum-Gravity Interplay (A. Bassi, UNITS): Professor A. Bassi returned to discuss Work Package 3 (WP3) focusing on the Quantum-Gravity Interplay. This session delved into the intricate connections between quantum mechanics and gravity, showcasing the consortium’s multidisciplinary approach.
  5. Management, Dissemination, Exploitation, and Communication (I. Spagnul, UNITS): I. Spagnul from UNITS presented progress on Work Package 4 (WP4), which encompasses Management, Dissemination, Exploitation, and Communication, including aspects of commercial exploitation. The comprehensive report emphasized the consortium’s commitment to effective project management and knowledge dissemination.
  6. Innovation Potential Discussion: A dedicated session was allocated to discussing the innovation potential of the consortium’s work. This interactive segment allowed participants to explore avenues for translating research outcomes into innovative applications.
  7. Closing: G. Kregar wrapped up the proceedings with closing remarks, expressing appreciation for the fruitful discussions and highlighting the collaborative spirit within the QuCoM consortium.
