Responsible Research & Innovation

NQIT has responded to the opportunities and uncertainties of quantum computing by committing to a programme of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).

The quantum technologies developed through NQIT will have the potential to change our world profoundly. These changes may be hard to predict, as emerging technologies combine with existing technologies and markets in unexpected ways to lead to new possibilities in economics, society and culture.

Responsible Research and Innovation draws in a wide range of stakeholders throughout the research and innovation process, to promote science and innovation that is socially desirable and in the public interest. A key task will be to explore how this relates to quantum computing and related technologies.

We have produced two reports:

"Thinking Ahead to a World with Quantum Computing". To accompany the report, we have also produced a Policy Brief which summarises the key points and recommendations in the report.

"Responsible Innovation in Quantum Technologies applied to Defence and National Security".
