As part of the £270 million investment of the UK national quantum technologies programme, EPSRC funded a national network of Quantum Technology Hubs. This was a £120 million investment in four hubs that will explore the properties of quantum mechanics and how they can be harnessed for use in technology.


UK Quantum Technology Hubs in:

Sensors and Metrology


Quantum Enhanced Imaging (QuantIC)


Networked Quantum Information Technologies (NQIT)


Quantum Communications Technologies (Quantum Communications hub)


Quantum technologies are expected to have applications across multiple future multi-billion-pound industries in many markets and sectors:

Quantum timing devices
Quantum gravity sensing devices
Quantum positioning systems
Quantum secure communications
Quantum enhanced imaging
Quantum computers
