2nd National Quantum Technologies Showcase


3 November 2016 - 2nd National Quantum Technologies Showcase, Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre,  Westminster, London SW1P 3EE

The UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is a £270m 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 success of the first national quantum technologies showcase last year, the 2016 event will highlight the relationship with industry and the programme’s potential for the creation of new markets and economic benefit, while showcasing technological demonstrators from the quantum technology hub network, alongside the work of the Quantum Metrology Institute and parallel industrial projects funded by Innovate UK, the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and the EPSRC.
Join us on the day to meet some of the researchers and industrialists driving these developments and for the opportunity to experience first hand some of the capabilities of the next generation of quantum technologies.
The 2nd National Quantum Technologies showcase is being organised by the Network of four Quantum Technology Hubs, in association with programme stakeholders - EPSRC, Innovate UK, BIS, National Physical Laboratory (NPL), Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN).

Cambridge Wireless TEC hosts ‘The Quantum Revolution is Coming’ – 14 September 2016

#CWTEC (2)

Quantum technology will have many applications in computing, communications and sensing. It promises to increase computational power by many orders of magnitude - what will a quantum computer look like and how will it be programmed?  How will we make cryptography safe once the methods we rely on today can be cracked by a new generation of computers?  How do we exploit quantum technology to solve this problem?  How will quantum clocks enable us to synchronise 5G networks? How will Quantum acceleration and gravity sensors enable new ways of mapping and navigation?  Are there new limits to communications beyond Shannon that we will be able to exploit?

The 2nd CW TEC  is aimed at technology leaders in industry, and young engineers and physicists, to give them an overview of the new world to come and examine the host of hard problems that need to be solved and the opportunities that will open up.

Quantum Technology for the 21st Century, 9 – 10 May 2016

Organised by Sir Peter Knight FRS, Professor Ian Walmsley FRS, Professor Gerard Milburn, Dr Jonathan Pritchard and Dr Stephen Till.

The meeting will include academic and industry leaders in quantum physics and engineering to identify the next generation of quantum technologies for translational development. These include: simulators for chemistry and materials, imaging systems, enhanced sensors, ultra-precise atomic clocks, secure communications networks and quantum co-processors, such as certified random number generators and small-scale computing engines. Registration is free, but you will need to cover the costs of your accommodation and catering. You can register for the meeting, and book lunch for both days, on the meeting webpage:
