The NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer is interested in supporting the State’s research and development in Quantum Technologies. The Defence Innovation Network is interested in finding out more about the current expertise in this area and expand on our capabilities. In preparation for the DIN Coordinator’s Meeting focused on Quantum Technologies, attendees are asked to consider the following questions for discussion:
What are the commercial opportunities in Quantum technologies?
Are there emerging opportunities that might attract larger scale investment to Australia/NSW or migrate R&D here (including sensing and computing)?
What role beyond the current Quantum Fund could the NSW Government play in creating the right environment for industry opportunities?
