Error-Proof Optical Bell-State Analyzer
Company Name TECHNISCHE UNIVERSITAET WIEN
Funded By 38
Country Austria , Western Europe
Project Value 3 Million
Project Detail

We propose to solve the long-standing problem of building a complete Bell-state analyser that is free from measurement errors. The realisation of such an error-proof Bell-state analyser constitutes a groundbreaking milestone for information technologies as it forms the key component for universal optical quantum computers and long-distance quantum communication. Reliable Bell-state detection will immediately impact the development of emerging quantum technologies, facilitate high-precision time-keeping and sensing, and enable future technologies such as secure communication or quantum cloud computing. This major conceptual and technological advancement will be made possible by combining two of the most recent breakthroughs at the frontier of quantum optics and nanophotonics: (i) ultra-strong quantum optical nonlinearities obtained from Rydberg-atom interactions or from a single quantum emitter strongly coupled to an optical microresonator and (ii) nanofabricated optical waveguide chips that permit high-level control of light propagation at the wavelength scale. The ambitious goal of the ErBeStA-project will be reached within a consortium which combines the essential conceptual and technological expertise in all required key areas and contributes complementary cutting-edge experimental setups that facilitate all necessary technological developments. Building the proposed Bell-state analyser will involve the development of advanced optical devices such as nondestructive photon-number-resolving detectors as well as configurable photon-number-specific filters and sorters, all of which constitute major scientific and technological breakthroughs on their own. Overall, ErBeStA will provide the first nonlinear light-matter interface coupled to on-chip complex optical circuitry, and, thereby, lay the foundation for future technology built on scalable quantum nonlinear devices.

Fibre optic nonlinear technologies
Company Name ASTON UNIVERSITY
Funded By 38
Country United Kingdom , Western Europe
Project Value 1 Million
Project Detail

Fibre-optic communication systems form the backbone of the world’s communication infrastructure as they provide for lion fraction (more than 99%) of the global data traffic. The ongoing exponential growth in network traffic, however, is pushing current technology, whose data rates had increased over several decades, towards its limits. It is widely accepted that the nonlinear transmission effects in optical fibre are now a major limiting factor in modern fibre-optic communication systems. Nonlinear properties of the optical fibre medium limit the conventional techniques to increase capacity by simply increasing signal power. Most of the transmission technologies utilized today have been originally developed for linear (wired or wireless) communication channels. Over the past several decades, significant improvements in data rates were obtained by improvements and modifications within the overall linear transmission paradigm. However, there is much evidence that this trend is going to end within the next decade due to fibre nonlinearity. There is a clear need for radically different approaches to the coding, transmission, and processing of information that take the nonlinear properties of the optical fibre into account. This also requires education and training of a new generation of optical communication engineers and specialists with knowledge on nonlinear methods and techniques. The EID FONTE R&D goals will be focused on development of disruptive nonlinear techniques and approaches to fibre-optic communications beyond the limits of current technology. The project will make important innovative steps in development of the technique of the nonlinear Fourier transform (NFT) and its implementation in the practical communication systems. The R&D tasks will be carried out along with training of PhD students in the leading research centres in Europe with industry focused projects with 50% of time spent in the world leading telecom centre - Nokia Bell Labs Germany.

Highly Disruptive and Compact Antenna Systems for Small Satellites with Application to Surveillance, Environmental and Crop-Growth Analysis, Enabling European Union Dominance in the Space Industry
Company Name HERIOT-WATT UNIVERSITY
Funded By 38
Country United Kingdom , Western Europe
Project Value 1,95,455
Project Detail

Compact satellites are transforming space-based surveillance systems. Typical configurations include a network of small satellites that can offer increased coverage and enhanced data collection rates when compared to conventional large scale systems. Microsatellites can also drastically reduce launching costs and mission development time, thus making remote sensing technologies more cost effective. Applications include vehicle tracking, weather monitoring, maritime surveillance, crop growth analysis, and climate change observation. However, with satellite miniaturization, new design aspects arise. All satellite components have to be cleverly packaged within a small payload and materials must accommodate the harsh operating environments of space. The objective of the proposed research program is to research, design and test some new and compact antennas with integrated feed systems for such microsatellites. High levels of technical engagement are expected with satellite companies within the European Union such as the European Space Agency, Clyde Space, and PocketQube Shop. The intent of the proposed research project is to also benefit from ongoing research within the Microwave and Antenna Research Group at Heriot-Watt University. This group has a track record of developing new and innovative antenna designs, feeding systems, and filters for space technologies while also working alongside industry experts, technologists, and government scientists. Previous and current industrial partners include Airbus Defence and Space, Bell Labs Alcatel-Lucent, BSC Filters, COM DEV, Samsung, Huawei Technologies, Selex, and Thales Alenia Space. Some recent projects include planar antennas for onboard satellite antenna technologies and power amplifier design as well as compact antennas for microsatellites. Some of these activities have won awards from the European Space Agency and The European Conference on Antennas and Propagation.

High Performance and High Yield Heterogeneous III-V/Si Photonic Integrated Circuits using a Thin and Uniform Bonding Layer
Company Name III-V LAB FRANCE
Funded By 38
Country France , Western Europe
Project Value 4 Million
Project Detail

The objective of PICTURE project is to develop a photonic integration technology by bonding multi-III-V-dies of different epitaxial stacks to SOI wafers with a thinner and uniform dielectric bonding layer. This heterogeneous integration platform will enable higher performance lasers and photo-detectors using the optimized III-V dies. In addition, the thinner bonding layer will lead to record performance MOSCAP III-V/Si modulators, and to a new generation of wavelength tunable distributed feedback lasers. Moreover the full process including SOI process, bonding, III-V and back-end process will be made on a 200mm R&D CMOS line, leading to higher yield, smaller footprint and lower cost PICs. Two types of PICs with a total capacity of 400Gb/s will be developed, packaged and validated in system configuration. In parallel, PICTURE project will develop direct growth of high performance quantum-dot lasers and selective area growth on bonded templates for high density future generation of PICs. The project is coordinated by III-V Lab, and includes University of Southampton, CEA, University College London, Imec, Tyndall, Argotech and Nokia Bell Labs. The consortium is highly complementary, covering all skills required to achieve the project objectives: growth of semiconductor materials, silicon process and III-V process, design and characterization of PICs, prototyping and assessment of PICs in high bit rate digital communication systems: Apart from the adequacy of the consortium to achieve collectively the project objectives, the consortium partners have the potential to set up a comprehensive supply chain for the future exploitation of the project results, either by exploiting the results “in house” or by setting up suitable partnerships.

Country United Kingdom , Western Europe
Project Value 22 Million
Project Detail

5G-ACE is engineered to be a two year Standard European Fellowship (EF) that aims to strengthen the ER (Experience Researcher)’s repository of scientific and transferable skills to place him in a strong position towards professional maturity, either at the host (University of South Wales) by targeting an “Academic Position by Research”, or as an independent researcher at leading international research centres and universities in Europe. The personalized training will identify key use cases and frequency bands for THz-based mobile communications, develop new 3D network models that take into account spatial coupling by re-examining legacy engineering tools such as stochastic geometry through interdisciplinary design, and involve practical experimentation that will be implemented as scheduled secondments at Nokia Bell Labs (Belgium), and Sigint Solutions Ltd (Cyprus). To complement the scientific training, the ER’s skill set will be enriched through a tailor-made Personal Career Development Plan (PCDP) that not only includes the core transferable skills (e.g, academic teaching, IPR management, research commercialization), but will identify other relevant complementary skills to provide a well-rounded research personality ready to embark on his 5G legacy and beyond.

EPSRC CDT in Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research - SABS:R^3
Company Name University of Oxford
Funded By 107
Country United Kingdom , Western Europe
Project Value 5 Million
Project Detail

Building upon our existing flagship industry-linked EPSRC & MRC CDT in Systems Approaches to Biomedical Science (SABS), the new EPSRC CDT in Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research - SABS:R^3 - will train a further five cohorts, each of 15 students, in cutting-edge systems approaches to biomedical research and, uniquely within the UK, in advanced practices in software engineering. Our renewed goal is to bring about a transformation of the research culture in computational biomedical science. Computational methods are now at the heart of biomedical research. From the simulation of the behaviour of complex systems, through the design and automation of laboratory experiments, to the analysis of both small and large-scale data, well-engineered software has proved capable of transforming biomedical science. Biomedical science is therefore dependent as never before on research software. Industries reliant on this continued innovation in biomedical science play a critical role in the UK economy. The biopharmaceutical and medical technology industrial sectors alone generate an annual turnover of over £63 billion and employ 233,000 scientists and staff. In his foreword to the 2017 Life Sciences Industrial Strategy, Sir John Bell noted that, "The global life sciences industry is expected to reach >$2 trillion in gross value by 2023... there are few, if any, sectors more important to support as part of the industrial strategy." The report identifies the need to provide training in skills in "informatics, computational, mathematical and statistics areas" as being of major concern for the life sciences industry. Over the last 9 years, the existing SABS CDT has been working with its consortium of now 22 industrial and institutional partners to meet these training needs. Over this same period, continued advances in information technology have accelerated the shift in the biomedical research landscape in an increasingly quantitativeand predictive direction. As a result, computational and hence software-driven approaches now underpin all aspects of the research pipeline. In spite of this central importance, the development of research software is typically a by-product of the research process, with the research publication being the primary output. Research software is typically not made available to the research community, or even to peer reviewers, and therefore cannot be verified. Vast amounts of research time is lost (usually by PhD students with no formal training in software development) in re-implementing already-existing solutions from the literature. Even if successful, the re-implemented software is again not released to the community, and the cycle repeats. No consideration is made of the huge benefits of model verification, re-use, extension, and maintainability, nor of the implications for the reproducibility of the published research. Progress in biomedical science is thus impeded, with knock-on effects into clinical translation and knowledge transfer into industry. There is therefore an urgent need for a radically different approach. The SABS:R^3 CDT will build on the existing SABS Programme to equip a new generation of biomedical research scientists with not only the knowledge and methods necessary to take a quantitative and interdisciplinary approach, but also with advanced software engineering skills. By embedding this strong focus on sustainable and open computational methods, together with responsible and reproducible approaches, into all aspects of the new programme, our computationally-literate scientists will be equipped to act as ambassadors to bring about a transformation of biomedical research.

The Yamnaya Impact on Prehistoric Europe
Company Name HELSINGIN YLIOPISTO
Funded By 38
Country Finland , Western Europe
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

Dramatic migrations in the third millennium BC re-shaped Europe, modifying its economy, society, ethnicity and ideological structure for ever. The best incentive proxy are populations that moved from the steppes of Russia, spreading as far west as Hungary, implanting a pastoral economy with widespread innovations. These dynamic people covered thousands of kilometres within a few centuries, and organised direct physical relations over the steppes for the first time. This synchronism is promoted by a society organised to fit to this lifestyle, with new herding techniques, likely use of wagons and domesticated horses, and a protein-rich diet, whose adaptive advantages are evident from the physical record in human skeletons and territorial extensions. This is the Yamnaya complex, whose impact remains visible today in the European gene pool and apparently the propagation of Indo-European languages. This international and interdisciplinary project examines the data from 320 excavated burial mounds and c.1350 burials to calibrate these changes, also against a control sample of supposedly local and neighbouring populations. The archaeological, biological and environmental information allows large, new datasets to be built, whose systematic interrogation and modelling should reveal the formative processes behind these changes. Assessing funeral archaeology, material culture, and exchange pattern defines their culture and impact. Scientific analyses of skeletons expose relations of origin, degrees of consanguinity, diet, and histories of individual mobility over single lifetimes with new precision and replicability. They should also act as proxy datasets for environmental changes using further analytical techniques in a context of landscape evolution. Diachronic patterns within these sets should link with aspects of the internal social dynamics, such as the creation of new status positions, visible later in the Pan-European Corded Ware and Bell Beaker groups.

Project Detail

TRICEPS aims at fulfilling all the requirements of the JTI-CS2-2018-CfP08-FRC-01-21, “Development of integrated engine air intake and protection systems for Tilt Rotor” by designing, manufacturing, testing and qualifying the left-hand and the right-hand side air intakes and their integrated engine protection system for the NextGenCTR technology demonstrator, contributing to meet the goals of the CS2JU FRC WP1. The proposed engine protection system is geared on two key enabling technologies: • a removable thermoelectric ice protection system based on the heater layer technology. This is already under development on the blade of the NextGenCTR and on the wing of the regional aircraft; • a vortex tubes filter for protecting the engine from ingestion of particles in harsh environment. The air intake will be equipped with a bypass for operation in clean flow and a compressor washing system. The choice of a vortex tubes instead of a barrier filter is key in TRIcEPS. This solution, despite providing 1-to-2% lower particle separation efficiency, allows for: • full self-cleaning capabilities, thus not requiring maintenance (i.e. fit and forget approach); • stable pressure drop in brownout operation, resulting in no need of emergency bypass actuation which would expose the engine to the harsh environment; • significantly reduced icing issues; • easier flight certification path, according to FAA; resulting in the best technical compromise for the NextGenCTR considering its mission profile. Moreover, this choice does not to infringe IPRs on tilt rotor air intake (as per patenting activities by Bell Helicopters on barrier filter), thus securing the position of Leonardo with respect to the future market. TRIcEPS will deliver the air intake, its engine protection system and all the relevant sub-systems at TRL 7, supplying Leonardo with the reference technical solution for engine protection of the NextGenCTR, strengthening the competitiveness of the European rotorcraft industry.

Project Detail

NEMO, NEtwork MOtion, is an inter-disciplinary proposal centered on network dynamics. The inter-disciplinarity spans from communication engineering to mathematics, with an innovative interplay between the two. NEMO’s focus is on stochastic geometry. This emerges as one of the most important new conceptual and operational tools of the last 10 years in wireless networking, with a major academic and industrial impact on architecture, protocol design, planning and economic analysis. Nevertheless, the state of the art is unable to cope with the dynamics introduced in recent and future network functionalities. NEMO’s aim is to introduce dynamics in wireless stochastic geometry. The dynamic versions of stochastic geometry to be developed will capture these new functionalities and specifically tackle two core promises and challenges of the future of wireless networking: that of ultra-low latency networking, required for enabling the unfolding of future real time interactions, and that of draining to the Internet the unprecedented amount and structure of data stemming from the Internet of Things. Several fundamental types of random network dynamics underpinning these functionalities are identified. General mathematical tools combining stochastic geometry, random graph theory, and the theory of dynamical systems will be developed to analyze them. This will provide parametric models mastering the complexity of such networks, which will be instrumental in addressing the above challenges. The aim is to have, through these dynamical versions, the same academic and industrial impact on wireless networks as static stochastic geometry has today. NEMO will leverage structural interactions of INRIA with Ecole Normale Supérieure on the mathematical side, and with Nokia Bell Labs and Orange on the engineering side. This will create in Europe a group focused on this mathematics-communication engineering interface, and to become the top innovation group of the field worldwide.

Developing Rapid Inquiry as a pedagogical framework for multimodal interactions in informal science settings
Company Name UNIVERSITY OF LEICESTER
Funded By European Union
Country United Kingdom , Western Europe
Project Value 20 Million
Project Detail

This project is firmly situated within the Learning Sciences – the interdisciplinary field that aims to further scientific understanding of learning and engage in the design and implementation of learning innovations; focusing on the area of Informal Science Learning – the study of science learning processes and outcomes in informal settings such as science centres. Bell et al. argue that a key challenge for science centres is to enable their visitors to link their emotional, sensory and cognitive interactions with the exhibits – known as multimodal experiences – to science-specific phenomena. This research aims to utilise the structure provided by inquiry-led scientific investigations to harness the engagement power of multimodal exhibits in science centres. To achieve this aim, we will work with science centre educators, science teachers and young people (aged 12-16) to: co-design a Rapid Inquiry framework; elicit user requirements; co-design interaction components that integrate multimodal interactions with exhibits; develop an Inquirer app and evaluate its impact; and develop a set of technical requirements and pedagogical guidelines that will enable science centres to adopt rapid multimodal inquiry as a pedagogical approach. Partnerships with science centres in the UK, local secondary schools and after-school science clubs will be established to secure maximum practical value and dissemination.
