Ireland has launched its first national strategy for quantum technologies, Quantum 2030, aimed at establishing a competitive global hub by 2030. The strategy focuses on areas of emerging growth in quantum technologies where Ireland 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 key focus area for the strategy. The country aims to harness the potential of quantum technologies to establish itself as a competitive global hub.
The national strategy for quantum technologies seeks to coordinate efforts from Ireland’s quantum technologies community to focus on areas of emerging growth in quantum technologies. By doing so, Ireland hopes to achieve a competitive advantage and establish itself as a leading player in this field by 2030.
