UK and US governments to partner to develop quantum technology

The UK and US governments will be collaborating to develop quantum information science and technology.

Indeed, a recent joint statement revealed the shared priorities for continued cooperation between the two nations, which will aim to promote research, build the global market, and supply chain, as well as train the next generation of scientists and engineers. Quantum technology will help transform society and enable more innovation and opportunities in the long run.

Moreover, the two governments will also encourage the exchange of people working in quantum centers and hubs and universities participating in Quantum research and development. This will then revolutionize computing and offer opportunities across the economy and society, from healthcare to cybersecurity and AI.

This partnership is part of a £1bn government and industry investment from the National Quantum Technologies Programme that aims to commercialize quantum innovations and ensure the UK’s status as a world leader in quantum science and technologies.
