York and Glasgow among leaders of quantum technology hubs

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council has announced a network of Quantum Technology Hubs involving 17 universities and 132 companies, which will look at how quantum mechanics can be used in technology.

The universities of Birmingham, Glasgow, Oxford and York were picked to lead the hubs during a competitive, peer-review process. Other funders include Innovate UK, formerly the Technology Strategy Board, the National Physical Laboratory, the Knowledge Transfer Network, GCHQ, and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory.

The hubs will focus on areas such as quantum metrology and sensors, quantum simulators, quantum computers and quantum secure communications. The aim is to increase the commercialisation of quantum technologies.
