Participation of a PICQUE fellow to the EuFactor Eventeufactor-prova_900x185-1100x400

Syed Adil Rab (ESR1) participated with a demonstration stand on quantum optics and information at the event EuFactor, which took place in Rome on 31 May 2016.
EuFactor is a project by the European Commission and European Parlament to encourage young students (16 to19 years old) to undertake studies of science and technology in higher education.


In March 2016, Marcello Graziosi (ESR3) took part in the activities organized for the PI-day in the high-school institute “liceo scientifico statale G.B.Grassi”, Latina (Italy). He explained the basic principle of quantum mechanics and photonics to the students, through the board game “Quantum Race” made by the IFN researcher Dr. Fabio Chiarello.
