Ireland has announced its first national strategy for quantum technologies, Quantum 2030. The goal of this strategy is to establish Ireland as a competitive global hub for quantum technologies by 2030. To achieve this, the country’s quantum technologies community must focus on emerging areas where they can gain a competitive advantage.
Quantum computing, which applies the principles of quantum theory to explain energy and material behavior at the atomic and subatomic levels, is a key area of focus for Quantum 2030. The strategy aims to harness the potential of quantum technologies to help Ireland achieve this goal.
The success of Quantum 2030 will depend on a coordinated effort from Ireland’s quantum technologies community. They must work together to identify emerging growth areas in quantum technologies where they can gain a competitive edge and develop strategies to exploit these opportunities.
By focusing on these areas, Ireland hopes to establish itself as a leading global hub for quantum technologies by 2030. This will require significant investment in research and development, as well as partnerships with industry leaders and academic institutions around the world.
