The Quantum Communications Hub is pleased to announce a new round of Partnership Resource Funding, which aims to support new collaborations that are closely aligned with the work of the Hub.
The vision of the Quantum Communications Hub, which is funded through the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, is to deliver integrated secure quantum communications at all distance scales. The Hub intends to do this by developing existing prototype quantum secure technologies beyond their current limitations; to thus contribute to the establishment of quantum communications technology industries in the UK; and to feed their future expansion, competitiveness, diversification and sustainability.
Proposals which would fall under the scope of this fund may include: feasibility studies, proof of concepts, preliminary developments and demonstrators. The Hub is also keen to support activities that may seed future work in research, R&D and innovation (e.g. Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund proposals). Some examples of projects previously funded can be explored on the Collaboration Opportunities section of this website.
Further details on the scope of the fund and application requirements can be found in the submission guidelines. Any interested parties are encouraged to contact the Hub’s Business Development Manager (Klitos Andrea – firstname.lastname@example.org) for a preliminary discussion in the first instance.
Deadline for applications: 5pm, 15 January 2021
