The National Quantum Computing Centre (NQCC) is a new research institution, launched in September 2020, which is dedicated to accelerating the development of quantum computing by addressing the challenges of scalability.
The NQCC represents a £93 million investment through UK Research and Innovation, and is being delivered jointly by the research councils, EPSRC and STFC.
This UKRI owned centre will drive activity toward building early quantum computers, enabling the full benefits to be realised from this emerging field. The Centre will work with businesses, government and the research community to deliver quantum computing capabilities for the UK, and support the growth of the emerging industry.
The NQCC facility will be located at Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire, and is due for completion in early 2023. Harwell Campus is home to world-class national research facilities and industry clusters.
