Sir Peter Knight"The UK’s National Quantum Technologies Programme has invested £1bn over ten years to create a coherent government, industry and academic community to accelerate the translation of quantum technologies into the marketplace.

As we approach the next phase, I welcome Imperial’s intent to engage with policymakers and external partners to help ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of the emerging multi-billion-pound new quantum technology markets." 

- Professor Sir Peter Knight FRS HonFInstP

QuEST is working in partnership with Imperial’s Public Affairs team to support evidence-based policymaking in the area of quantum technologies. We are currently running a project funded by Research England Policy Support Fund focussed on four areas aligned with the QuEST academic strategy project:
1. Quantum Internet
2. Materials for Quantum Technologies
3. Post-Quantum Cryptography
4. Applications of Quantum Computing
