Welcome to techUK’s #QuantumFuture campaign week! (11 – 15 November)
Between 11 – 15 November, techUK will be highlighting quantum technologies emerging across the UK, delving deeper into the transformative potential!
Over the next five years, the proportion of firms seeking to invest in quantum computing is set to nearly triple (from 11% today, to 32% in five years) .
In preparation, techUK has already begun to engage UK industry, to better understand how the development, deployment and adoption of quantum technologies might have profoundly positive and transformative consequences for high-value technology sectors and society at large.
At our recent workshops on quantum computing and post-quantum cryptography, techUK engaged with UK industry to explore how the emergence of quantum technologies might add to the growing complexity of the UK’s economy, raising the stakes across international markets and strengthening the need for cross-sector collaboration, investment and responsible innovation.
Building on the insights gained in these sessions, therefore, we are delighted to welcome you to techUK’s first ever #QuantumFuture week!
Each day, we'll be highlighting the views of policy makers, investors and innovators at the forefront of the UK's burgeoning quantum technology sector:
- Monday – Vision and strategy for the UK’s quantum future
- Tuesday – Opportunities for commercialisation and deployment: Where, when and how?
- Wednesday – Cyber security and quantum: A match made in heaven?
- Thursday – Possible challenges to the UK’s quantum future? How do we plan for success today?
- Friday – What the UK needs to succeed and call to action?
Stay tuned for updates, follow our campaign on Twitter and LinkedIn using the #QuantumFuture & @techUK tags and feel free to get in touch with Tom.Henderson@techUK.org or Sue.Daley@techUK.org for more information!
