EPSRC Quantum Technologies workshop

The EPSRC will be holding a Quantum Technologies workshop on the 10th of May 2022 with the aim of bringing the quantum technologies and engineering communities together. This workshop aims to explore and assess the current state of the research and industrial landscape at this interface between the Quantum Technologies and Engineering communities and highlight how best the community can be supported to deliver positive impact across various sectors and the UK R&D landscape.

The workshop will consist of:

  • Keynote talks from community leaders and EPSRC.
  • Facilitated discussion sessions around common challenges across the quantum technologies and engineering research ecosystem, and emerging fundamental and application-based research areas for engineering new quantum devices research.
  • Networking opportunities.

It is anticipated that this event will be of interest to researchers working in both quantum technologies, and engineering fields with knowledge, experience, and interest in the interface between both sectors and particular focus towards application-based research areas for engineering new quantum devices research. Colleagues from industry and the third sector are also encouraged to apply in order to foster relationships between industrial needs and fundamental engineering new quantum devices research, as well as supporting EPSRC to ensure non-academic drivers are reflected in future priorities and scoping activities. 

The event will be in an accessible format. Whilst in-person attendance is highly encouraged, opportunities to attend online or in-person in Manchester (venue to be confirmed) will be offered.

Please note there is no funding associated with this activity, but key outputs will be collated from the workshop and key findings will be disseminated with attendees.
