Online Event: Quantum investment driving national quantum science and engineering

20 May @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

As the UK investment drives a new phase of the National Quantum Technologies Programme, there will be significant opportunities for multi-disciplinary work and the contribution that we as engineers can make will be vital to the commercialisation of quantum technologies and computing across all sectors.

Join us to hear from Rachel Maze, Deputy Head of the Office for Quantum within the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology who will be speaking on ‘Opportunities in quantum: an overview of the National Quantum Strategy and government plans to deliver impactful applications associated with their use.

During this talk Rachel will touch on the National Quantum Strategy published by the government in March 2023 with a vision to make the UK a quantum-enabled economy. This Strategy was accompanied by a commitment of £2.5bn over ten years to realising the significant opportunities associated with their use.

Rachel will set out key commitments and achievements to date across the four strategy goals, and will highlight some of the most exciting applications associated with the exploitation of these technologies. The session provides an opportunity for the engineering profession to understand the applications anticipated across multiple sectors and how to get engaged in delivering them.
