We invite people in business, academia and government with an interest in quantum technologies to attend the official opening of the Quantum Metrology Institute at the National Physical Laboratory. The event will provide an opportunity to hear about our exciting work, meet our scientists and see our laboratories, as well as to meet NPL’s new Chief Executive Dr Peter Thompson.

The QMI plays a central role in the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme (UKNQT), providing the measurement validation that helps prepare products for market. The Institute brings together all of NPL's leading-edge quantum science and metrology research, providing the expertise and facilities needed for academia and industry to test, validate, and ultimately commercialise new quantum research and technologies
