What is Quantum Portugal Initiative Lecture Series?

The QPI Lectures are a series of freely accessible live webinars organized by INL, to track the rapid progress of research and development in quantum science and technology.

This field studies how quantum mechanics enables new ways of designing new materials, processing and communicating information, and developing new sensors. These free, online webinars, will provide a technically-minded audience with overviews of these disruptive areas, given by researchers who are world leaders in their fields.

Register for free and attend the live talks, and participate in the live question and answer session at the end of each one.

Starts next week!

With the Quantum Portugal Initiative,  we are setting the foundations to train a generation of quantum scientist and technologies to make the contribute to the second quantum revolution.

Talk 1: Pascale Sennelart

Associate Professor of Ecole Polytechnique, and Senior CNRS Researcher at
the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at Palaiseau (France)

Join us in this Second Quantum Revolution!

Graduated from École Polytechnique and Doctor in Quantum Physics from Université Paris 6, Pascale Senellart joined the CNRS in 2001. She was appointed senior researcher in 2011 and has been professor of quantum mechanics at Polytechnique since 2014.

Her research activity is at the interface between nanosciences, semiconductor physics and quantum optics. Her team developed quantum light sources of unprecedented efficiency and this work was recognised by the CNRS Silver Medal in 2014 and the election as a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA) in 2018.

In addition to her research activity, P. Senellart is co-founder of Quandela, a company that sells unique photon sources and is in charge of promoting industrial transfer within the DIM SIRTEQ dedicated to quantum technology in the Île-de-France region

With the Quantum Portugal Initiative,  we are setting the foundations to train a generation of quantum scientist and technologies to make the contribute to the second quantum revolution.

Our goal, train a new generation of PhD students in the area of quantum science and technology

There is an urgent need for institutions and countries to face this new wave of scientific and technological innovations. In this context, there is a need in Europe to gather critical mass in order for Europe to be competitive in this new fast progressing area worldwide. To that end, by opening a special call-in this area there is a possibility for Portuguese research to be competitive in a European context by training a new generation of PhD students in the area of quantum science and technology.
