CQT Annual Report 2020 cover

"One lesson we all know: science is truly unstoppable. The year of the pandemic has been a time of dramatic actions in quantum research. We went through a very difficult year, full of constraints and isolation, while interest for quantum technologies percolated in the minds of decision makers...Quantum is on the rise."

So writes José Ignacio Latorre in opening the CQT Annual Report 2020, in his first Director's Letter since taking leadership of the Centre in July 2020. Read the full letter, along with highlights of the centre's science, statistics on our activities and news about our people in the report.
