£15 million to train next generation of Quantum Engineers

Yesterday, the government announced they were to commit £15 million towards training the next generation of quantum engineers. This is great news for QuantIC and our partners!

The funding – via the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) – will be used to create a number of quantum technologies ‘skills hubs’ across the UK, which will work in partnership with industry to deliver training and career development programmes for PhD students.

Business Secretary Vince Cable said:

From cameras that can see through smoke to cracking down on internet fraud, quantum technologies are taking innovation to a whole new level and offer an unparalleled opportunity to shape the next generation of high-tech products that will improve our day-to-day lives.

This £15 million investment will ensure we have the flexible, highly-skilled workforce needed to turn these futuristic ideas into a reality.
