Upcoming events

Wednesday 21 August 2019
Central London

The UKRI National Quantum Computing Centre (NQCC) will enhance the UK’s global leadership, allow it to translate its research strength into innovation and produce the first generation of quantum computers that will enable the UK to create a competitive advantage with new products and services. Acting now will allow us to take advantage of the strength and opportunity we generated through the first phase of the National Quantum Technologies Programme.

We invite people in business, academia and government with an interest in Quantum Computing to attend. The event will provide an opportunity to engage about progress on the NQCC programme, and to network with peers.

Please complete the expression of interest form at the main event page to attend. The closing date is Monday 5 August 2019.

Please note the event is likely to oversubscribe and sifting will take expertise and balanced representation of organizations into consideration.

The National Quantum Technologies Showcase 2019

Friday 15 November 2019
QEII Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London, SW1P 3EE

The UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is a UK Government Investment in excess of £600m over 10 years, aimed at accelerating the translation of quantum technologies into the marketplace, boosting British business and making a real difference to our everyday lives. Following on from the four previous national quantum technologies showcase events, the 2019 event will continue to build on the success of previous years, recognising and demonstrating the breadth of current investments and activities undertaken as part of the National Programme and the growing commercialisation of quantum technologies in the UK.

The 2019 Showcase is being organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in collaboration with the National Network of Quantum Technology Hubs and the other National Programme Partners.

To attend, please register at the Showcase's Eventbrite page.

If you are interested in exhibiting at this year's event, an expression of interest process is underway, closing on 19 June 2019. A full briefing document, including how to express your interest to exhibit, can be found below:

The National Quantum Technologies Showcase 2018

Friday 9 November 2018
QEII Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London, SW1P 3EE

The UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is a £270m UK Government investment over five years, aimed at accelerating the translation of quantum technologies into the marketplace, boosting British business and making a real difference to our everyday lives. The vision is to create a coherent quantum technology community that gives the UK a world-leading position in the emerging multi-billion-pound new quantum technology markets, and to substantially enhance the value of some of the biggest UK-based industries. The programme supports investments in research, innovation, skills and technology demonstration to help UK industry to commercialise these new technologies.

Following on from the three previous national quantum technologies showcase events, the 2018 event will demonstrate the technological progress arising from the national research programme, its relevance to commercial sectors and the collaborative nature of the programme involving academia, industry and government partners.

The 2018 Showcase is being organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in collaboration with Innovate UK, the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the National Network of Quantum Technology Hubs and the other National Programme Partners.
