with long term interest as potential users of future quantum information
technology. Such interested parties will be actively encouraged
to join QUIPROCONE and keep up to date with QIPC research results
and development opportunities through their association.
It should be noted
that any research groups/individuals/institutions who receive EC
funding for QIPC during the life of QUIPROCONE will, via this EC
funding, automatically qualify for Member status
If an EC national
group, individual or institution recognized in the QIPC research
community has no past or current involvement with any EC funding
for the subject, well-defined steps will be taken to bring such
recognized research into the QUIPROCONE Membership.
All QUIPROCONE Members
must be eligible to apply for EC funding for QIPC (even if they
have not done so); those candidates/applicants not eligible for
EC funding are restricted to Associate status.
