Delft, 6-7 March 2014


The Landauer project ( held a consortium meeting in Delft (NL) on March 6-7.

The project, funded by the E.C. (FET Proactive G.A. 318287), is coordinated by NiPS and deals with operating ICT basic switches below the Landauer limit.
During the meeting the various partners of the project have presented the state of the research in the workpackages under their responsibility, according to the following agenda:
