Past Calls

You can find below an overview of two past calls of the European Young Researchers Platform.

1) Active Research Quantum Cryptography: A web platform for diffusing QKD among PhD Candidates and Post Docs

Active Research Quantum Cryptography (ARQC) is not a traditional web based course of physics on a specific topic, but aims at promoting an innovative way of disseminating knowledge in science. The technique to be used has already been repeatedly tested with great results in other (less sophisticated) contests.

In this sense, ARQC is also an interesting new experience which we hope you will share with us. This new approach is entirely web based and makes use of an interactive process among participants and lecturers.

  • ARQC will provide to registered participants, four “on-demand” web lectures (available by the end of 2013) by prominent QKD scientists touching few specific fundamental points of QKD:”Introduction to QKD” by Momchil Peev, Austrian Research Centers GmbH ARC (Austria)
  • “Security of the QKD” by Norbert Lütkenhaus, University of Waterloo (Canada)
  • “Practical QKD” by Gregoire Ribordy, ID Quantique (Suisse)
  • “Metrology for QKD” by Christopher Chunnilall, National Physical Laboratory (UK)

Registered participants may also exploit the specifically designed ARQC platform to:

  • a) raise questions to be answered by the scientific panel (lecturers plus few others scientists in the field)
  • b) promote, in a specific forum, discussions among the participants themselves and the scientific panel
  • c) an area will be available for posting additional documents
  • Participate here: http://www.activeresearch.eu/
  • The project will start at the beginning of January when lectures will start to become available on the web site
  • The discussion/forum will start February 15th
  • The ARQC web platform will be maintained active even after May 2014.
  • The ARQC project is part of the dissemination program of the EU grants MIQC and SIQUTE.
  • *The registration is free.*

A special section at the congress QUANTUM 2014 (Turin, Italy 26-30 May 2014) [http://www.inrim.it/~brida/Quantum_2014/ ] will be devoted to discuss the ARQC project and related subjects. This will be the occasion to assess the usefulness of the approach and decide whether further steps will be taken. The registered participants will benefit of a 50% reduction of conference fee.

Active Research Organising Committee:
Enrico Predazzi (Agorà Scienza)
Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese (INRIM)

2) Institutional Human Resources Strategy Group: Call for Candidates for the 4th Cohort

The “Institutional Human Resources Strategy Group” was launched by the European Commission in 2009 with a view to supporting the take-up of the Charter & Code principles by employers and funders of researchers in Europe. The aim of the group is to provide a framework and platform for the exchange of experiences and mutual support in the implementation of the “HR Strategy for Researchers incorporating the Charter and Code” (see http://ec.europa.eu/euraxess/rights for more information).

Deadline: 28 September 2012
