The musicians have also studied with Hatto Beyerle (Alban Berg Quartet) and Aldo Campagnari (Quartetto Prometeo) and have attended the Lübeck Musikhochschule with Heime Müller (Artemis Quartet).

The Noûs Quartet won the first prize at the Luigi Nono International Competition in Venaria Reale, Turin, as well as the XXI Anemos International Competition in Rome. In 2014 it was awarded an honourable mention at the Sony Classical Talent Scout in Madesimo, Italy.
