Businesses can apply for a share of £13 million to develop quantum technology prototypes or establish technical or market feasibility
Programme: Innovate UK
Award: Up to £350,000
Opens: 30th Jan 2017
Closes: 5th Apr 2017
The aim of this competition is to encourage collaborative feasibility studies that will improve understanding of the technical or market feasibility of a product or service.
The scope of this competition allows for both technical and non-technical projects. This includes projects that focus on understanding the business or market opportunity and challenges.
These projects will establish feasibility for devices that exploit one or more of the following phenomena:
The scope also allows for component technologies. These will be important in the construction of future quantum systems or subsystems. They include but are not limited to:
These projects will involve work to understand:
This may include projects that involve one or more of the following activities:
To allow for all levels of interest Innovate UK are running a collaborative research and development (CR&D) competition in parallel with this competition. This will allow for the development of quantum technologies that are closer to market.
