QuantIC, the Quantum Imaging Centre, brings together experts from the universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, Strathclyde, Bristol and Oxford to commercialise cameras built with quantum technology. More than 30 industry partners will help QuantIC’s imaging systems benefit the UK economy.
The centre will be funded by a £27 million award from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
Deputy first minister John Swinney said: “QuantIC is exactly the type of collaboration between academia and industry which confirms Scotland’s place as a world leader in scientific innovation.”
