UK National Quantum Technology Showcase 2015

UK National Quantum Technology Showcase 2015

Wednesday, 11 November, 2015 - 10:00 to 16:00

The UK National Quantum Technology Programme (UK NQTP) Showcase is a unique opportunity to meet the four UK Quantum Technology Hubs - a consortium of 17 UK universities, and find out about the latest advances in imaging, sensing, metrology, secure communication and computing.
You will also discover how industrial collaboration is leading to applications for these new technologies in market sectors such as agriculture, defense and security, environmental monitoring, automotive, oil and gas, medical imaging, navigation, communications and information processing and how your company or sector could get involved.
This is the only Quantum Technology event in the UK where you can view and interact with live technology demonstrators from the four hubs. It is especially designed to showcase the potential applications and will be a chance for visitors to discuss possible opportunities with the hubs. The exhibition is running throughout the day and you can drop in anytime to visit.
At our conference, speakers from industry and the hubs will be sharing their perspective on the UK commercial opportunities in the field of quantum technology and highlighting progress made in the first year of the programme.
