Quantum Technologies Innovation Chairs

When developing the UK National Strategy for Quantum Technologies, the Strategic Advisory Board identified increasing international engagement as one of five areas of focus in order to maximise the benefit of the programme to the UK.

The Strategy recognises the importance of the UK continuing to support international collaboration as a means to attract the best talent. To confirm the commitment of the National Programme in international engagement, EPSRC, with the support of Innovate UK and the Royal Academy of Engineering, are inviting Expressions of Interest (EoI) from individuals, and their proposed UK host organisations, that will contribute to the expansion of the UK's quantum technologies capability through their specific focus on innovation.

EPSRC has £10 million of funding available for this call to support four to five Innovation Chairs over a four-year period starting on 01 April 2017.
