We were delighted to welcome Darren Jones MP to the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information at the University of Bristol on Friday, where he was able to hear about all of the fantastic work being carried out and to see our Quantum Engineering Labs.

The visit follows Ashley Montanaro’s evidence to the Commons Science and Technology Committee’s Inquiry into Quantum Technologies* in June of this year. Darren was able to hear about the full range of quantum-related activity at the University, from theory to enterprise. The discussion covered everything from the potential economic impact of quantum computing to ensuring Universities can access the necessary funds and people to make it happen. 

The Bristol Quantum Information Institute and PolicyBristol were delighted to host Darren for such a thoughtful and informative discussion, and will continue to work with policymakers to ensure the UK embraces the possibilities offered through quantum technologies.
