Quantum Technology: The Journey to Quantum Engineering

12 November 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Speaker: Professor Sir Peter Knight FRS

The UK, through a mix of government and industry funding, has committed more than £1Bn over 10 years to a co-ordinated programme in quantum technology. Five years into this programme, Sir Peter will describe how we got there, and the goals for the future. The UK National Quantum Technology Programme has induced a step change in the UK’s capabilities for pushing forward a new sector in future information technologies. Sir Peter will describe how the programme arose and the activities it supported and influenced to deliver these new capabilities, building on a first phase of almost £480M investment across several UK government agencies. The UK programme is now entering its second phase, with a further substantial investment by UK government and global industries in the UK making a total of over £1Bn. Sir Peter will describe plans for ensuring the advanced quantum science and demonstrator platforms in imaging, sensing, communications and computing developed over the past five years will drive the formation of the QT sector and embed quantum tech in a broad range of industries.
