Ireland has just unveiled its first national strategy for quantum technologies, called Quantum 2030, with the goal of establishing a competitive global hub in this field by 2030. The strategy aims to focus the efforts of Ireland’s quantum technologies community on areas of emerging growth in quantum technologies, where the country can gain a competitive advantage.
Quantum computing, which uses the principles of quantum theory to explain the behavior of energy and material on the atomic and subatomic levels, is a primary focus of Quantum 2030. The strategy seeks to harness the potential of this exciting technology to establish Ireland as a leading player in the global quantum computing landscape.
The national strategy for quantum technologies recognizes that Ireland has a unique opportunity to leverage its strengths in research and development to drive innovation in this rapidly evolving field. By focusing on emerging areas of growth and investing in cutting-edge research and development, Ireland can position itself as a competitive global hub for quantum technologies by 2030.
