Quantum City is a joint public engagement initiative involving many stakeholders of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme. It brings together researchers from the UK Quantum Technology Hubs, Centres for Doctoral Training and National Physical Laboratory.

The partners share a joint communications and impact evaluation plan, and provide a series of science festival demonstrations, a strong online presence and a coordinated social media strategy. The aim is to instil an understanding of the benefits of quantum technologies, showcase the UK’s expertise in this area, and inspire young audiences to become the next generation of quantum technologists.

With the help of quantum science, the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is working towards making a positive difference to your everyday life, from medicines, finance, energy use and telecommunications to imaging and computing.
