Winners of UK Government’s £15 million Quantum competition announced

The first winners of a £15 million competition to explore the benefits of using quantum technologies in the Government’s work across areas like health, transport and net zero have been announced today (7 September). The Quantum Catalyst Fund aims to accelerate the adoption of quantum solutions by the public sector and hopes to ensure the UK Government is well-placed to fully harness the benefits of using these technologies across a range of policy areas.


Quantum technologies – one of the Government’s five critical technologies – are devices and systems using quantum mechanics to provide capabilities that ‘classical’ machines like binary computers cannot.

Over the next ten years, quantum technologies are expected to revolutionise many aspects of life in the UK and bring enormous benefits such as helping to grow the economy and create well-paid jobs across the country.

The first round of feasibility studies under the new fund will explore how this technology can provide new capabilities in public services, such as quantum-enabled brain imaging in healthcare to tackle epilepsy, concussion, and dementia, or quantum computing that can solve optimisation problems in energy grids, helping us to reach net zero
