In January, Davide Rizzotti (Early Stage Researcher, ESR3) started his first secondment within the NANO-GLASS project at Corning Incorporated. Davide is completing his secondment at Corning’s Sullivan Park Research and Development facility.
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.
NANO-GLASS early-stage researchers, Alessia Mezzadrelli (ESR2) and Davide Rizzotti (ESR3), and project’s coordinator, Valerio Pruneri, participated in the 2022 edition of CARLA Camp, which took place on the 1st and 2nd of December at ICFO.
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.
Most recently, Prantik Mazumder, Principle Research Scientist, from Corning Incorporated and partner of the NANO-GLASS project, visited ICFO for a few days and met the researchers of the NANO-GLASS project.
The NANO-GLASS project team is finally complete, after Susana Plascencia and Alessia Mezzadrelli have ended their training period and became full members of the consortium.
The United Nations declared 2022 the International Year of Glass (IYoG), a year devoted to celebrating “the essential role glass has in society.” Corning Incorporated, industrial partner of the NANO-GLASS consortium and Diamond Sponsor of IYoG, was integral in putting the event together.
Iliyan Karadzhov and Davide Rizzotti are the two first Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) that have officially joined the NANO-GLASS project after passing their six-month training period.
Nano-Glass’ Mid-term check meeting took place on 3rd of June at ICFO. The Project Officer (PO) from the European Research Executive Agency (REA) had the opportunity to meet face-to-face for the first time with a large part of the consortium members, including the four Early Stage Researchers (ESR) of nao-Glass project.
