The aim of the competition is to advance the commercialisation of quantum technologies in the UK. This funding is from ISCF.
This advance is achieved through the investment of up to £7 million in innovation projects which address one or more of the following technical challenges:
Your feasibility study project’s total eligible costs can be up to £500,000. If your project is market research, its total eligible costs can be up to £50,000.
Your project must:
Projects can be single or collaborative but must involve a micro, small or medium sized enterprise (SME), either as the lead or a partner.
Subcontractors are allowed in this competition and must be selected through a participant’s normal procurement process. Subcontractors can be from anywhere in the UK. If an overseas subcontractor is selected, a case must be made as to why no UK-based subcontractor can be used including a detailed rationale, evidence of UK companies that have been approached and reasons why they were unable to do so.
Any one business can lead up to 3 applications, but all applicants can partner in any number of applications.
The aim of the competition is to advance the commercialisation of quantum technologies in the UK. Your proposal must identify a clear market opportunity and an innovative project which exploits it.
The project must:
Second generation quantum technologies are defined as those involving the generation and coherent control of quantum states, resulting in phenomena such as superposition or entanglement. Technologies involving single photon generation and quantum computing are in scope.
You must describe how you will collect project metrics, including:
Your project must address at least one of the following:
