Imperial College Supporting the UK Quantum Technology Industry
(Imperial.ac.uk) The UK has committed more than £1 billion over ten years to a co-ordinated programme in quantum technology, which has recently entered its second phase. “The UK has a comprehensive and coherent programme of research and skills training, and Imperial is a major contributor to its success. We think there are significant commercial applications of quantum technologies and we are working closely with our industry partners to help realise these”, Professor Walmsley, Imperial’s Provost and Chair in Experimental Physics.
Professor Ian Walmsley FRS the organised the College’s Industry Partnerships and Commercialisation team, which provides an opportunity for industry representatives to meet Imperial researchers and students and explore the developing quantum technology landscape in these arenas:
Imperial hosts a Skills Hub and a Centre for Doctoral Training to train next-generation quantum engineers and scientists, including around 80 PhD students researching quantum technology and science.
