A 155 million fund for a national network of Quantum Technology Hubs that will exploit the properties of quantum physics to develop quantum technologies - with a view to eventual application - was today opened for bids by the
Between 10-20 million per Hub will be available and this will be complemented by a 75 million fund for capital investment across the network.
EPSRC has worked with the science community to identify areas where the development of quantum technologies has the potential to make a transforming impact. These will definitely include the following five areas:

Notes to Editors:
Each Hub will be expected to: Focus on challenges associated with translation of quantum science through technology to potential application, addressing at least one theme identified in the call.
Offer visionary leadership, with the ability to collaborate with other hubs and the wider community to deliver a national strategy for Quantum Technology.
Act as an international centre of excellence, able to harness existing strengths from across the research landscape, through consortia that bring together researchers and research translators in relevant areas such as Engineering, ICT, Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics.
Have significant engagement with industry and other stakeholders, as this is essential to develop a Quantum Technologies industry base in the
Actively manage the technology translation process. Hubs must manage resources flexibly to maximise exploitation opportunities. Work on proof of principles and moving toward the demonstration and production of prototype devices will be central to the deliverables. Hubs must include fabrication capabilities for Quantum Technology devices, and investigate potential appropriate routes to manufacture. Hubs should also engage with later stage translation funding opportunities and investments.
Foster linkages with investments from multiple
