National Network of Quantum Technology Hubs

The UK has established four Quantum Technology Hubs to stimulate the formation and exploitation of new radical and disruptive information technologies.

The hubs will focus on novel devices and processes imaging, sensing, communications, simulation and computing. These are at Glasgow, Birmingham, York and Oxford. NQIT is the Oxford-led Hub and will focus on Networked Quantum Information Technologies, in which ion traps, the most advanced quantum logic platform, are connected photonics networks, with applications to the above area. The Hub is a consortium of partners across nine UK universities as well as more than two dozen industrial and government partners.
