    Prof. Jason Jones' research team was one of 36 research teams selected out of 250 applicants to participate in the Million Dollar International Quantum U Tech Accelerator Competition hosted by the Innovare Advancement Center last week. Jones presented his poster virtually and gave a live-streamed talk at the event. After all presentations were completed 18 teams qualified to share $1M in research funding. Of those 18, Jones was selected to receive $75K for his team! Jones said of the award, "it opens opportunities for further funding; the exposure to program managers and potential for additional funding is as valuable as the “seedling” award itself." Congratulations, Jason! Check out all the posters here, and the Jones team poster here.

    The conference was live-streamed and is now available to watch:
