Workshop on « Quantum gravimetry in space and on ground »

On the 26th and 27th of May 2021, the WG Q.1 organized a workshop on « Quantum gravimetry in space and on ground »

This (virtual) meeting covered a broad scope of quantum gravity sensing, from the development of the
sensors and their characterization, to a large panel of present and future applications. It brought together instrument scientists from the quantum physics community and users from the geoscience community.
