September 20, 2021

The United Kingdom is hosting an amazing array of Quantum technology and Quantum Computing companies. A new quantum campus located at Harwell will further cement the success of the Quantum industry. Cambridge Quantum is rapidly growing in size it appears to be one of the UK’s largest Quantum Computing companies, but there are a plethora of other companies such as Nu Quantum and Riverlane who are pushing the boundaries of Quantum building everything from the core research and science to a Quantum Operating system. The NQCC will bring together academia, business, and government with the aim of addressing key challenges to quantum computing.

Science Minister Amanda Solloway and Nu Quantum were at the literal breaking of ground for the new centre. The centre is based in Oxford and is due to launch in 2023.

“The National Quantum Computing Centre will tackle the key bottlenecks in quantum computing by bringing together experts from across the UK’s outstanding research and innovation system from academia and industry to unlock the potential of this exciting new technology.”

Professor Dame Ottoline Leyser, Chief Executive at UK Research and Innovation
