Quantum Information being a multi-disciplinary field, the board members profiles have been chosen so as to provide the various involved communities with the best possible overlap. However, when specialized workshops will be organized within the framework of a non-represented thematic, new key interlocutors will be associated with the board, non only for organization purpose, but also to answer in the most efficient way to the participants expectations in terms of lectures during the workshops.

Following this idea, the GDR scientific animation is jointly ensured by Perola Milman & Sébastien Tanzilli, who are two young researchers at CNRS having complementary skills: Perola Milman is theoretician associated with section 04 of CNRS (main section of the GDR), whereas Sébastien Tanzilli is experimentalist associated with section 08 of CNRS (secondary section of the GDR). They work with teams belonging to laboratories (MPQ in Paris/ISMO Orsay and LPMC in Nice) having complementary skills and numerous connections and collaborations at both the national and international levels.
This double profile also answers to the ambition of the GDR of promoting both the fundamentals and the applications of Quantum Information.
This joint head will guaranty the cohesion of the board and will drive the GDR scientifically thanks to two board meetings a year during which the colloquiums and workshops topics will be chosen.
Moreover, thanks to their high scientific complementarity and joint work, they will be key partners for the Quantum Information community, the CNRS and the Universities.

Finally, both the administrative direction and budget management of the GDR are ensured by Sébastien Tanzilli and the laboratory with which he is associated (LPMC, UMR 7336).
