We are happy to announce that RCQI (FU SAV, Bratislava) is organizing
16th edition of traditional CEQIP workshops. This year it will be held in
"kings' town" Skalica (Slovakia, 60km north of Bratislava).
Deadline for absract submission is 15/03/2018 and
the submission/registration will be open at the beginning
of February. Looking forward to meet you there!

European Microkelvin Platform (EMP)
Approved H2020 RIA project (Call H2020-INFRAIA-2018-1, RIA, 2019-2020)
for (CLPT) Center of Low Temperature Physics (joint research center of Institue
of Experimental Physics of SAS and Faculty of Natural Sciences of
Šafárik University, Košice). EMP is a consortium of 17 partners
(8 key partners) which have an extensive
portfolio of capacities and expertise in ultralow temperature physics. EMP will
receive 9.98 M€ (1.1 M€ allocated for CLTP) in the next four
years from the European Commisson for supporting user access to its
facilities as well as operating and updating the infrastructure.
The research activities are dedicated diretly to quantum technologies.
Annotation: The European Microkelvin Platform (EMP) provides access to the ultralow temperature frontier approaching absolute zero. The Platform is continuously evolving by extending its reach, building on the integration achieved through previous infrastructure calls. Europe already has a significant research lead in the microkelvin regime and we will reinforce this by encouraging the further exploitation, in both the shorter and longer term, of ultralow temperatures for the development of new concepts, new applications and new devices, especially in the fields of nanoscience, materials research and quantum technology in all its forms. The EMP is a consortium of 17 partners which provide an extensive portfolio of capacities and expertise in ultralow temperature physics. Since this is a fast evolving and expanding frontier field, we also lay considerable weight on improving and upgrading our infrastructure, since the lowest accessible temperatures are continuously falling. These advances allow us, and our users from across Europe, to study new phenomena, thereby generating new knowledge, applications and commercial opportunities. We have a particular interest in the benefits of ultralow temperature physics for driving forward the inter-related areas of quantum materials, nanoscience, and quantum technology. The activities of the EMP hold enormous potential for innovation. A more extensive description of the Platform and its philosophy can be found in Nature Reviews Materials, The European Microkelvin Platform, Nat. Rev. Mater. 3, 18012 (2018).
