Overcoming current technology limitations through world-class research and development

The Quantum Communications Hub is a technology research and development collaboration of UK Universities, industrial partners and public sector stakeholders brought together to accelerate the commercialisation of secure quantum communications technologies and services at all distance scales.

The Hub is funded through the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, a £1 billion investment over 10 years, aimed at creating a coherent government, industry and academic quantum technology community that gives the UK a world-leading position in the emerging multi-billion-pound new quantum technology markets, and at substantially enhancing the value of some of the biggest UK-based industries.
