DIADEMS, partner of the ASTERIQS project, has been selected as one of the 10 finalists of the Horizon Impact Award 2020

Published on September 30th, 2020

DIADEMS has been selected as one of the 10 finalists of the Horizon Impact Award 2020, the European Commission’s initiative to value and celebrate FP7 or H2020 projects that have used their results to provide value for society.

The work performed during the DIADEMS project has led to significant progress in NV-based quantum sensing. The Quantum Flagship ASTERIQS project, involving the DIADEMS consortium and additional partners, is capitalizing on these results to develop applications based on the NV- centre in diamond in many fields.

All 10 finalists are presented in the following video where Thierry Debuisschert, as Coordinator, is introducing DIADEMS:
