Quantum leap

The UK quantum community has taken an important step forward with a breaking-ground ceremony on the site of the UK’s National Quantum Computing Centre (NQCC) within the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory on Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire. 

When completed, the Centre will support the growth of the UK’s quantum computing industry by providing experts from the public, private and third sectors with a flagship facility where multi-disciplinary teams can collaborate on the development and operation of multiple quantum computing systems and applications. 

Scheduled to open in mid-2023, the NQCC is being delivered jointly by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) as part of the UK’s National Quantum Technologies Programme (NQTP) – a ten-year, £1 billion programme that aims to ensure the successful transition of quantum technologies from laboratory to industry. 

The breaking-ground ceremony was led by Professor Sir Peter Knight, Chair of the National Quantum Technology Programmes Strategy Advisory Board.
