The 2019 event will continue to build on the success of previous years recognising and demonstrating the breadth of current investments and activities undertaken as part of the National Programme and the growing commercialisation of quantum technologies in the UK.
The UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is a UK Government Investment in excess of £600m over 10 years, aimed at accelerating the translation of quantum technologies into the marketplace, boosting British business and making a real difference to our everyday lives. The vision is to create a coherent quantum technology community that gives the UK a world-leading position in the emerging multi-billion-pound new quantum technology markets, and to substantially enhance the value of some of the biggest UK-based industries. The programme supports investments in research, innovation, skills and technology demonstration to help UK industry to commercialise these new technologies.
NPL is the UK’s National Measurement Institute, providing the measurement capability that underpins the UK’s Prosperity and quality of life. Technological advances, like quantum technologies, must be built on a foundation of reliable measurement to succeed.
The Quantum Metrology Institute brings together NPL’s leading- edge quantum science and metrology research and provides the expertise and facilities needed for academia and industry to test, validate, and ultimately commercialise new quantum technologies.
The institute provides the measurement expertise and facilities needed to underpin the UK government’s National Quantum Technology Programme. By bringing together scientists, engineers and academic researchers in a highly collaborative environment, the QMI plays a key role in the creation of a UK industry based on quantum technologies.
