Event Details

ukri is logo

Stakeholders from industry and research organisations are invited to attend the competition briefing event for the latest funding opportunity as part of the ISCF Commercialising Quantum Technologies challenge.

This latest competition will award up to £30m to industry led projects aimed at addressing technological barriers to the commercial or industrial exploitation of quantum technologies in the UK. This in contrast to recent CR&D and FS competitions which focussed on developing products, services and components.

Projects should exploit second generation quantum techniques and focus on one or more of the challenge areas of:

  • Connectivity
  • Situation awareness
  • Quantum computing

Projects must be collaborative, business led, and have eligible costs of £4m-£20m (with a maximum grant size of £10m).

This event is a must-attend for stakeholders that are interested in applying to the competition to hear the full scope and application process and ask questions of the Challenge Delivery Team.

This is the only briefing event that will be held for this competition. Not able to attend? This event will also be available via webcast and you can register to join online here.

Details on the competition scope are now available online here. The EOI stage of the competition will open on 28th October 2019 and close on 27th November 2019.
