UCL Quantum Science and Technology Institute


How to get involved

There is a wide range of methods of engagement with UCLQ, from contributing to our training programs, engaging in collaborative research and much more.

QLABS project: A Quantum Innovation Centre in London
Visit the QLABS website to find out more about the project or to join the Q-LABS network.

Collaborate with us on research activities
UCLQ has one of the broadest research portfolios of any quantum centre in the UK, covering quantum computing hardware and software as well as quantum sensing, metrology and communication. We have an excellent track record in raising research funding in quantum technology on projects co-led industrial partners, for example through Innovate UK or UKRI (EPSRC).
If you are interested in a collaboration, please contact Henry Bennie or Prof Paul Warburton.

Co-fund a PhD student in one of our programmes
Co-funding a PhD student offers an excellent way to engage with UCLQ, contributing to the definition of the student project, (where appropriate) helping with the research, hosting the student on research visits and secondments, offering mentorship. Our students receive intensive training in the first year, followed by a 3-year research phase. We have ~10 industrially co-funded PhD students at present on our programmes from a range of partners.
To find out more, please contact Prof Paul Warburton.

Contribute to our training programmes
Our PhD and MSc training programmes offer many opportunities for guest lectures from industry, either delivered at UCL or one of our week-long residential schools outside of London (typically in Cumberland Lodge or Chicheley Hall). We encourage our industrial partners to deliver lectures at these schools, giving a new perspective on quantum technology research.
If you are interested in collaborating with UCLQ please contact Henry Bennie or Prof Paul Warburton.

Participate in our training programmes
UCLQ offers short introductory courses in quantum technology aimed at the commercial sector, delivered by experts in the field. You can find out more here.

Invest in our start-ups
We have a growing number of start-ups in quantum technology at various stages of investment, including some which are pre-seed. Contact Henry Bennie to find out more about current investment opportunities in quantum technology start-ups.
