Accepting written submissions.
Quantum technologies have been selected by the Government as one of fourteen ‘core industrial challenges’ to be tackled through its Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. The Industrial Strategy itself announced that the quantum technology sector will be allocated £20m of ‘pioneer funding’ and be the subject of a minister-led review. This follows the establishment of the National Quantum Technologies Programme in 2013, and a Government Office for Science report on quantum technologies in 2016.
