Institute of Physics Lecture: What's Quantum Technology - London South East Branch, hosted by The Open University
The UK National Quantum Technology Programme has induced a step change in the UK's capabilities for pushing forward a new sector in future information technologies. We describe how the programme arose and the activities it supported to deliver these new capabilities, building on a first phase £480M investment across several agencies. The UK programme now enters its second phase, with further substantial investment making a total of over £1bn. I will describe our plans for ensuring the advanced quantum science and demonstrator platforms in imaging, sensing, communications and computing will drive the formation of the QT sector and embed quantum tech in a broad range of industries.
