The Nicholas Copernicus University (UMK) in Toruń has signed a contract with The Project Management (PM) Group, an international engineering and architectural firm, for the design of the Centrum Fizyki Kwantowej (Quantum Physics Center). The center will conduct research in the field of quantum optics and applications in natural and biomedical sciences. The building will have nearly 2,000 square meters of space. It will be located on the premises of the UMK Institute of Physics. The project will cost about zl.25 million, including EU Operational Program co-financing of zl.22 million.

"The center will serve to raise research in the field of quantum optics to European standards," said Prof. Włodzimierz Jaskólski of the UMK Institute of Physics. "The work to be conducted in one of the center's five laboratories, provided with state-of-the-art equipment, will help improve methods of data storage in optical systems and foster the development of cryptography, or information encryption aimed at secure data transfer. In the future, the research is expected to achieve world standards and help eliminate the present barriers to building a quantum computer."

Design work on the project is scheduled to be completed at the end of January 2009. Building work will last until the end of 2010. The laboratories will be fitted with specialist equipment in 2011.

The PM Group is also overseeing the first stage of construction work on the LifeScience Biotechnology Park of the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, the only facility of its kind in Central Europe. The park will consist of three connected buildings housing laboratories and offices.
