LuxQuanta, an ICFO spin-off, has recently joined NANO-GLASS project as partner organization. The company will participate in the project by hosting part of the next secondments of Susana Plascencia (ESR4). Plascencia will spent 3 months of secondment at LuxQuanta where she will be supervised by Dr. Sebastian Etcheverry, Chief Technnology Officer (CTO) & co-founder of the spin-off.
NANO-GLASS project organized its first workshop, entitled “Integrated Devices for Quantum Communication and Processing,” on February 16th. The event was held in person at Corning Incorporated’s global research and development facility, Sullivan Park, located in New York state (USA). The event was also streamed online, attracting nearly 50 participants.
Alessia Mezzadrelli (Early-Stage Researcher 2, ESR 2) arrived last december in Corning, NY, where she will be living over the next six months to carry out her first secondment within the NANO-GLASS project at Corning Incorporated’s Sullivan Park Research and Development facility.
At the beginning of July, Iliyan Karadzhov, early stage researcher (ESR 1) of the Nano-Glass project, arrived at Corning Incorporated’s Sullivan Park Research and Development facility located in Erwin, NY to start his first secondment. Secondments are research training periods spent by the recruited ESRs at the premises of a partner of the consortium to not only enrich the training experience of the ESRs but to develop new skills that may be useful for their future career. Iliyan will be living in New York and working at Corning until the end of December 2022.
