Dissemination, Communication and Management
To manage the project, NONGAUSS will have an International Management Board consisting of Ulrik L. Andersen (DTU), Radim Filip (UP) and Julien Laurat (SU) to manage all activities efficiently and timely in high-level cooperation with the project partners at DTU and SU. The Board chaired by the Coordinator will meet in quarterly organized Skype meetings and at the four face-to-face meetings at the time of the NONGAUSS Workshops.
The Skype meetings will in February, May, September and November.
To obtain fruitful advice, the Board will use feedback and stimulation from the International Advisory Board (Markus Aspelmeyer, Akira Furusawa, Steven Girvin, Gerd Leuchs) by emails.
To disseminate, results of training will be presented to the UP team by short talks after any short-range training and regular talks after any mid-range training. The presentations will be archived and publicly available on the NONGAUSS website. Knowledge transfer will be comprehensively summarized in two publicly accessible survey papers written together by UP, DTU and SU about non-Gaussian quantum physics. Workshops and Summer Schools will be publicly available; at the Summer Schools, all presentations and materials will be archived and publicly available. The results stimulated by NONGAUSS will be presented in talks and posters at international conferences and also at international colloquia with acknowledgement to NONGAUSS and the EU twinning program.
To communicate, a discussion forum with regional, national and EU R&D&I Policy Makers will be organized at 3 Quantum Panels. Internal communication via private forums (blogs) at the project website will serve as a vehicle for knowledge exchange, besides, other effective online communication methods between project partners.
For external communication, NONGAUSS will use the established university offices for public relations (PR) and media communication at UP, DTU, and SU. They will inform the general public about the strategy, plans, and major outcomes of NONGAUSS and twinning programs (web page, social networks, educative presentations about quantum technology for high schools and primary schools, public talks, popularizing presentations). NONGAUSS will organize 3 Quantum Meetup Days for talented students of high schools from Olomouc and neighbouring regions, in which speakers, recruited primarily from ESRs, will transfer their experience and motivation to become scientists/researchers.
