Ireland has unveiled its first national strategy for quantum technologies, Quantum 2030, with the goal of establishing a competitive global hub in the field by 2030. The strategy aims to harness the potential of emerging growth areas in quantum technologies where Ireland can gain a competitive advantage.
The primary focus of Quantum 2030 is on quantum computing, which uses the principles of quantum theory to explain the behavior of energy and material on the atomic and subatomic levels. By investing in this area, Ireland hopes to establish itself as a leading hub for quantum computing research and development.
To achieve this goal, the strategy calls for a coordinated effort from Ireland’s quantum technologies community. This includes leveraging existing expertise and resources in the field, as well as attracting top talent and investment to support growth in emerging areas of quantum technology.
By focusing on emerging growth areas in quantum technologies, Ireland hopes to position itself as a competitive global hub for these cutting-edge fields by 2030. With a strong commitment to innovation and collaboration, Quantum 2030 represents an exciting opportunity for Ireland’s quantum technologies community to drive progress and shape the future of this rapidly growing industry.
