The Royal Academy of Engineering has been commissioned by the UK government to conduct an independent review of the UK’s quantum infrastructure to support the delivery of the UK’s National Quantum Strategy. The project is chaired by Dame Frances Saunders DBE CB FREng.
For the purposes of this Review, ‘quantum infrastructure’ primarily concerns access to physical infrastructure, however skills capabilities and other system enablers will also be considered in relation to successful operation of physical infrastructure.
The Review will consider the timescales and the potential pinch points in the quantum supply chain (e.g. dependencies on other nations or sectors for access to key infrastructure).
The Review builds on stakeholder engagement and previous work conducted on quantum infrastructure to ultimately provide recommendations to Government on key priorities to target in terms of infrastructure investments for the benefit of a resilient UK quantum sector.
