Ireland has recently unveiled its first national strategy for quantum technologies, called Quantum 2030. The goal of this strategy is to establish Ireland as a competitive global hub in the field of quantum technologies by 2030. In order to achieve this goal, 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.
One of the key focus areas for the strategy is 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 leader in this rapidly growing field and attract top talent and investment from around the world.
To succeed in its quest to become a competitive global hub for quantum technologies, Ireland will need a coordinated effort from its entire quantum technologies community. This includes researchers, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and industry leaders who are all working together to identify areas where Ireland can excel and develop strategies to capitalize on these opportunities. With its ambitious goals and commitment to innovation, Quantum 2030 represents an exciting opportunity for Ireland to position itself at the forefront of this rapidly developing field.
