WEBINAR - Quantum Technologies Global Expert Mission Dissemination Workshop
***You, like us, will be only too aware of the fast-developing situation with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and wellbeing of our attendees and staff is our priority and, with this in mind, we have decided to move the Quantum Technologies Global Expert Mission Dissemination Workshop from physical event to online webinar.
We will work with you and all of our attendees and speakers to ensure that, despite not being face-to-face, we still give you as much opportunity to network and connect as possible.
Online Networking Platform: If you have opted in for access, this will be made available the week before the online event. You will be able to search the other participants and request 1:1 meetings with them which will be scheduled in the afternoon of the event via video chat embedded within our platform.
We welcome your feedback as to how the events are working online and how we can improve or increase their reach in these ever-changing circumstances.
Connecting people to collaborate and drive change through innovation has never been more important. Thank you for continuing to engage and we look forward to meeting you ‘online’ at this event.***
To help UK businesses become truly global enterprises through strategic collaboration, Innovate UK launched its Global Expert Missions in October 2017. Delivered by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), the missions provide an expert-led evidence base to strengthen Innovate UK’s global investment strategy: how and where it should invest to create UK business opportunities in partnerships with key economies.
Each mission has representatives from UK business, policy and research community, who:
1. Gather market insights and build expert foresights on new and emerging innovation sectors
2. Identify opportunities for international collaboration
3. Build a portfolio of technological and business priorities that will elevate the UK as the ‘Partner of Choice’ in future innovation partnerships with global partners
4. Facilitate international dialogues for the UK business community
5. Align innovation policy and unlock regulatory barriers for future partnerships
In November 2019, an Expert Mission travelled to Washington DC, Colorado and California, and builds on the work of a previous group who visited the Boston area in September. These Missions sought to inform the UK’s international strategy for Quantum Technologies by exploring the US quantum landscape and examining opportunities to collaborate with US organisations. Meetings were held with large companies (Google, Honeywell), SMEs (Rigetti, Psi Quantum etc) and academic institutions (Caltech, Stanford, University of Colorado), and evidence taken from all of the relevant US government agencies (DoD, DoE, AFRL, NASA etc).
