Over the next five years, the proportion of firms seeking to invest in quantum computing is set to nearly triple.
In preparation, techUK has already begun to engage UK industry, to better understand how the development, deployment and adoption of quantum technologies might have profoundly positive and transformative consequences for high-value technology sectors and society at large.
At our recent workshops on quantum computing and post-quantum cryptography, techUK engaged with UK industry to explore how the emergence of quantum technologies might add to the growing complexity of the UK’s economy, raising the stakes across international markets and strengthening the need for cross-sector collaboration, investment and responsible innovation.
Building on the insights gained in these sessions, we are delighted to welcome you to techUK’s first ever #QuantumFuture week! Each day, we covered different themes, highlighting the views of policy makers, investors and innovators at the forefront of the UK's burgeoning quantum technology sector:
Monday – Vision and strategy for the UK’s quantum future
Tuesday – Opportunities for commercialisation and deployment: Where, when and how?
Wednesday – Cyber security and quantum: A match made in heaven?
Thursday – Possible challenges to the UK’s quantum future? How do we plan for success today? (investment, skills, supply chain development, sustainability)
Friday – What does the UK need to succeed and what is the industry call to action?
