LANDING

A national centre of innovation and collaboration to unlock quantum’s potential.

In May 2024, the Australian Government awarded $18.4million to the University of Sydney to establish Quantum Australia – a new national centre to help grow the quantum industry and ecosystem in Australia. 


Quantum Australia will bring together some of Australia’s leading research institutions, industry partners and quantum companies, and will have a broad reach both at home and abroad. It will help grow the Australian quantum industry by:

 
Icon Supporting the adoption, development, and commercialisation of quantum technologies.
   
Icon Building connections and driving collaborations across industry, research, and government in the quantum ecosystem, both nationally and internationally.
   
Icon Increasing awareness and educating industries across the broader economy and society on the implications and opportunities of emerging quantum technologies.
   
Icon Supporting the responsible and inclusive development of quantum technology in Australia.

An Establishment Committee for the new Quantum Australia centre has been formed, comprising key establishment partners from universities across Australia.  This committee is working on setting up  the national centre and state-based nodes as well as the appointment of a Quantum Australia executive team and Board.  
Note that this website exists as an interim site for Quantum Australia.

Quantum Australia Conference 


The new centre will take on coordination of the annual Quantum Australia Conference. Planning for the next conference as well as a range of quantum focused events is due to kick-off in the coming months. In the meantime, you can find out more on past Quantum Australia conferences on the Sydney Quantum Academy website.
