Partnership Resource Projects

QuantIC’s £4M Partnership Resource Fund (PRF) bridges the gap between industry and academia and is designed to accelerate the uptake of quantum technologies which will give a competitive edge to UK industry whether through new products, enhanced functionality of existing products or lower costs.

Industry-led applications for the PRF can be submitted in two phases.  Phase 1 projects help companies develop ideas for a new or enhanced product, service, process or capability. The project should aim towards a proof of concept, which will help define a path to commercialisation. Phase 2 projects cover research and innovation activities with a particular focus on demonstration (field testing, prototype, miniaturisation, integration etc.). Please click on each project title below to find out more projects QuantIC has funded.
