QuReP at the 5th IDQ Winter School

QuReP Partner IDQ just finished its fifth in an increasingly popular series of Winter Schools. This year the programme was extended to include Quantum Computing as well as a day dedicated to Quantum Repeaters, with Lectures given by QuReP researchers Nicolas Gisin, Mikael Afzelius and Rob Thew from the University of Geneva.  As the QuReP project heads into its final six months, this was a perfect opportunity to talk to the diverse audience that these Winter schools attract.  The feedback from the physics students, security specialists and various industry-oriented participants revealed a high degree of interest in the quantum technologies that QuReP is trying to develop.
