Event description

Description

Quantum physics is not the realm of science fiction; quantum properties are driving the next generation of innovative technologies that will have an impact on society in the near future. From non-invasive medical imaging to unhackable data security, discover how the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is translating quantum theory into real-world applications in a panel discussion with directors from the UK’s four quantum technology hubs and an interactive exhibition of these emerging technologies to get a glimpse of what living in a 'Quantum City' might be like.

This event is in partnership with stakeholders of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme
