Understanding the importance of standards in Quantum Technology

Workshop: Facilitating the development of standards in Quantum Technologies

A range of emerging quantum technologies are likely to have significant impact on the way our lives function in the future. Successful development, commercialisation and deployment will likely depend on standards covering various aspects of their construction, operation, security and validation.

As part of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, NPL and the Quantum Computing and Simulation Hub, are hosting a workshop on 15 March, to bring together UK industrial, governmental and academic organisations within the quantum field to exchange ideas about the need for standards, discuss which activities to pursue, and how the UK ensures that it plays a full role internationally in this emerging aspect of quantum technologies.

Speakers include:

  • Sir Peter Knight FRS, Chair of the UKNQTP Strategic Advisory Board;  
  • Dr Rhys Lewis, Head of Quantum Metrology Institute, National Physical Laboratory;
  • Daniel Okubo, Deputy Director, DCMS;
  • Emelie Bratt, Programme Manager, BSi;
  • Jonathan Legh-Smith, Head of Scientific Affairs, BT;
  • Professor Kai Bongs, Director of Innovation, PI of the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Timing, University of Birmingham
  • Dr Richard Murray, Co-founder and CEO, ORCA Computing
