Work with us – Industry Partners

QuantIC aims to translate cutting edge research into technology that is ready for commercialisation either through industrial collaboration, joint ventures or spinouts.

Industry partnerships are central to innovation at QuantIC and there are multiple ways you can benefit from collaborating with us.

  • Access financial support through our Partnership Resource Fund
  • Engage in an active community of research in Quantum Enhanced Imaging
  • Utilise our Innovation Space

We work in close partnership with industry throughout the technology development process.  From proof of concept in the early stages of innovation, to field testing, system and component prototyping and commercialisation.

QuantIC can also partner on projects funded though Innovate UK, Centre for Defence and Enterprise (CDE), Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, and other external schemes.

Partnership Resource Fund

QuantIC supports companies by funding collaborative projects through the Partnership Resource Fund as well as partnering on projects funded through Innovate UK, Centre for Defence and Enterprise (CDE), Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.


The Partnership Resource Fund has two main streams:

  • The Industrial Partnership Fund to support the commercial uptake of new imaging technology either through collaboration with industry or new venture creation.
  • The Accelerated Development Fund to increase the pipeline of new technology into the hub.

QuantIC is pleased to announce that the Industrial Partnership Fund is open for applications.

Work with us – Academic Community

QuantIC’s investigating team and their groups represent over 120 full-time researchers in quantum technology across eight partner institutions.

QuantIC is committed to supporting the development of new ideas emerging from academic research. That’s why we have set up the Accelerated Development Fund, an open call designed to ensure we remain responsive to new developments in the field of quantum imaging.

The Accelerated Development Fund (ADF) is a £2m funding call seeking university led projects which can accelerate innovation in quantum imaging in alignment with industry priorities and societal needs.

We are also eager to hear about other projects the academic community have in development either within your institution or in collaboration with industrial partners. So come talk to us and find out about how else we may support your innovation journey.

Work with us – Students

The QuantIC Hub has strong links with national labs and industry, which presents an excellent opportunity for future career opportunities.

Students interested in the field of quantum are invited to apply for our QuantIC PhD Studentship Programme. Designed to ensure that students are equipped with the technical knowledge and transferrable skills needed for their future careers, the programme will also give you an opportunity to engage with companies and academics at the forefront of Quantum Technology activities within the UK and worldwide.

QuantIC collaborations

In the first five years of the National Quantum Technology Programme QuantIC invested over £3m in collaborative projects through its Partnership Resource Fund leading to novel imaging products and has supported the creation of 3 new companies.
