Last Friday, 13th May of 2022, members of the Quantum Flagship community met at the Sorbonne University in Paris for the Flagship Cluster Day. The final event for this first 3 years of the initiative was organised by the European Commission, bringing together the Flagship’s scientific ‘clusters’. These projects are now finishing, marking the end of the Flagship’s ramp-up-phase.
The day was taken to reflect on the success and challenges met by the projects, and finally bring the community back together for a physical meeting. With over 70 attendees in-person and dozens more online, the day allowed for fruitful discussion and insight, with some light-hearted reminiscing in between.
Each project had time to highlight their achievements, the difficulties they faced and future roadmap. The day culminated in a panel talk, with representatives of various quantum initiatives and the Commission sharing their thoughts on the Flagship’s ramp-up phase and future direction.
