Event description
Joint workshop: National Centre for Earth Observation, Centre for EO Instrumentation and the QT Hub for Sensors and Metrology

About this Event

This workshop focuses on the potential offered by new quantum technologies for the next generation of gravity sensors and future space missions and the subsequent benefits for science, society and the economy.

It will investigate how disruptive quantum technologies are changing the traditional Earth Observation landscape in gravity measurements, and the new opportunities for the public and private sectors.

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • To increase the level of knowledge and understanding of the potential of quantum technologies for future EO gravity missions
  • To develop a UK network in the science, technologies and application of QT for EO
  • To inform and prepare UK-focused teams for future international missions through ESA and other potential business opportunities.
