(Birmingham.co.uk) The UK Quantum Technology Hub Sensors and Timing, led by the University of Birmingham, will receive £23.5 million to continue the drive to develop real world applications by harnessing the power of quantum physics. These will have significant impact in sectors important to the UK.
Science Minister, Chris Skidmore said: “Harnessing the full potential of emerging technologies is vital as we strive to meet our Industrial Strategy ambition to be the most innovative economy in the world.
Dr Simon Bennett, Director of the UK Quantum Technology Hub Sensors and Timing, stated, “We have forged strong links with key industry companies in order to develop quantum sensors in a commercial environment. Our aim has always been to merge academic expertise and industry experience to create ground-breaking, disruptive technology, and this will be carried through into Phase II of the UK Quantum Technology Hub Sensors and Timing.”
