The Quantum ESPRESSO Foundation, in collaboration with Eurotech, announces the establishment of the Quantum ESPRESSO prize for quantum mechanical materials modeling. The prize, which consists of a diploma and a check of one thousand euros, will be awarded annually in January to recognize outstanding doctoral thesis research in the field of quantum mechanical materials modeling, realized with the help of the Quantum ESPRESSO.
QEF is the home of the Quantum ESPRESSO project for materials modeling at the nanoscale. We pledge ourselves to an open vision of science and software engineering. We foster the design, development, maintenance, and distribution of high-quality open-source software for the quantum simulation of matter, and we are committed to the dissemination of the art and science of scientific computing, by promoting training courses worldwide.
