2023 - Project team member of Croatian Quantum Communication Infrastructure - CroQCI project (101091513 — CroQCI — DIGITAL-2021-QCI-01)

Project team (PT) is the operational body of the consortium. PT focuses on WP/activity leads and is responsible for project implementation at the operational level ensuring timely and high-quality implementation of all project activities. 

2022 - Member of CEN-CENELEC Focus Group on Quantum Technologies (CEN-CENELEC FGQT)

Quantum technology is in full development. An ecosystem of companies that focuses on quantum technology has already emerged in the Europe. Although we are still at the beginning of a revolutionary development, it is already important that quantum engineers think about its standardization. Contributing to standardization helps, for example, to demonstrate impact in grant applications and to investors, but also to realize a standard quality measure that can demonstrate the quality of a solution.

CEN-CENELEC Focus Group on Quantum Technologies (FGQT) is developing a roadmap for standards on quantum technology, describing what aspects should be standardized and when and where.  

2021 - Member of Thematic Innovation Council (TIC) for Security 

TICs were established by the Innovation Council for the Industry of the Republic of Croatia, at the proposal of the Ministry of the Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts, and established for each of the five Thematic Priority Areas (TPAs) of the Smart Specialization Strategy of the Republic of Croatia 2016-2020. (S3)

TICs act as the main coordinating bodies for each thematic priority area, ensure strategic management of it and provide an opportunity for networking of stakeholders in the business, research and public sector in accordance with the so-called model triple helix.Each TIC consists of representatives of the business sector (70 percent), consisting of company representatives and representatives of business organizations and associations, representatives of the scientific and research community operating in the area relevant to a particular TIC (20 percent) and representatives of public bodies. authorities (10 percent).
