ISCF Commercialising Quantum Technologies Tech Projects Competition Briefing - Webcast recording and slides are now available

Posted on: 30/10/2019

This event is about the new funding competition and how you can get involved.

Stakeholders from industry and research organisations are invited to attend the competition briefing event for the latest funding opportunity as part of the ISCF Commercialising Quantum Technologies challenge.


This latest competition will award up to £30m to industry led projects aimed at addressing technological barriers to the commercial or industrial exploitation of quantum technologies in the UK. This in contrast to recent CR&D and FS competitions which focussed on developing products, services and components.

Projects should exploit second generation quantum techniques and focus on one or more of the challenge areas of:

  • Connectivity
  • Situation awareness
  • Quantum computing


Projects must be collaborative, business led, and have eligible costs of £4m-£20m (with a maximum grant size of £10m).


This is the only briefing event that will be held for this competition. 


View and download the slides here.


Details from the competition scope will be posted on Innovate UK’s website during October. The EOI stage of the competition will open on 28th October 2019 and close on 27th November 2019.
