Cross-Cluster Proof of Concept Grant & Highlight Call on Quantum Computing

The National Quantum Computing Centre (NQCC) is sponsoring a Highlight Call on Quantum Computing, delivered in partnership with the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC). This Highlight Call is part of a wider Cross-cluster Proof of Concept Grant call, which aims to promote engagement across organisations in the Space, EnergyTec, HealthTec, and Digital Tech clusters associated with the Harwell Science and Innovation and Sci-Tech Daresbury campuses.

The Highlight Call on Quantum Computing call aims to stimulate industry engagement, and interactions with the NQCC, as well as organisations associated with the clusters.

We are looking to fund short proof-of-concept projects on quantum computing that are business-led. For this Highlight Call, companies that are not currently associated with one of the established clusters, and particularly those that wish to engage directly with the NQCC, can apply.

The NQCC encourages applications for feasibility studies that offer the prospect of being scaled into larger projects further downstream. Projects may include the demonstration of concepts that inform the development of a longer-term roadmap towards scalable quantum computing technologies.

Please note that all proposals to the Highlight Call must obtain a letter of support from the NQCC prior to submission. To discuss your idea or make new connections related to quantum computing, please contact nqccinfo@nqcc.ac.uk.

To discuss your application regarding the Cross-Cluster Proof of Concept Grant, please contact CrossClusterPOC@stfc.ac.uk.

For more detailed information on both parts of the call, please download the call guidance document by clicking on the link below.

All applications must be completed in full and submitted along with supporting documentation by 5:30 pm on 17 November 2021.

Quantum Technology Career Development Fellowships

The NQCC is sponsoring a number of awards through the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, EPSRC’s call on Quantum Technology Career Development Fellowships. We are looking to support talented postdoctoral researchers, who have the potential to lead their own research programs and develop their research profiles within quantum computing. The funding is available for between three and five years. The opportunity to apply closes on 5th October 2021.
