The Scottish Centre for Innovation in Quantum Computing and Simulation is a new centre, bringing together world-class expertise across quantum hardware and software at the University of Strathclyde, University of Edinburgh, and University of Glasgow. By joining up our capability in software for end-user applications with expertise in developing novel quantum-hardware platforms, we will accelerate the development of quantum-computing technologies in Scotland, aiming to make end-user advantages over classical computing possible in the near term.
We invite colleagues from industry to discuss business advantages and applications from developments taking place within the field of quantum computing.
We plan to host another workshop on SCIQCS capabilities and quantum computing applications for industry later this year. For more information, to register your interest for the meeting, or to arrange a separate meeting please contact either Jeremy Ward, or any of the academic contacts.
Previous SCIQCS Industry workshop, 29th August 2019
This meeting took place on 29th August from 10:30am – 2pm at the University of Strathclyde. Its aims were to:
- Hear about business opportunities and application interests across different sectors
- Share, from an industrial perspective, the existing and developing systems to solve challenging problems
- Provide an opportunity to learn about the expertise in our new combined centre (SCIQCS) and why this is relevant to current and emerging industry interests.
- Discuss opportunities to engage with researchers from these three universities and funding mechanisms currently available to support collaborations, including the newly announced Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.
