UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase 2021
November 5, 2021 @ 9:15 am - 4:00 pm| Free
Join UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase where Innovate UK, with KTN support, will be showcasing 60+ exhibitions demonstrating growing commercialisation and industrialisation of quantum technologies in the UK.
Game Changing science and technologies that will transform business and everyday lives.
In the UK, through strong collaboration between academia and industry, we are accelerating the development, industrialisation and adoption of quantum science and technologies in application areas such as sensing and metrology, computing and simulation, communication and imaging. There are some huge breakthroughs across automotive, healthcare, infrastructure, telecommunications, cybersecurity and defence.
The UK alone counts for around half of the quantum businesses in Europe. Real-life projects are evolving such as miniature satellites being developed to provide ultra-secure communications using quantum technology, development of quantum-enabled gas sensors that detect industrial leaks and the creation of advanced receivers flagging to companies if the data they are transmitting has been accessed by others. More recently the newly launched National Quantum Computing Centre funded through UKRI has been established to work with business, government and the research community to accelerate the development of quantum computing by addressing the challenges of scalability.
Get back to business at UK National Quantum Technologies Showcase 2021
Join us for this year’s Showcase where we will be showcasing 60+ of the UK’s most exciting projects from across the Quantum landscape alongside the growing commercialisation and industrialisation of quantum technologies in the UK.
The showcase will also demonstrate the success and progress of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme (UKNQTP) which is investing £1 billion of private and public funding into quantum research and innovation over the next 10 years. Including several hundred businesses from supply chain, end users and technology developers, the programme aims to accelerate the translation of quantum technologies into the market to boost UK business and make a real impact to our everyday lives.
You will leave the showcase with an understanding of quantum capabilities that are close to market, real-life uses of the technology such as fridges and lasers and hear about the success stories where quantum is a solution such as imaging alcohol vapour from maturing whisky casks.
This event is aimed at anyone from industry, academia, VC’s and investors and Government who are looking to explore the huge opportunities quantum can offer.
