Description:

The program was announced as part of the National Quantum Strategy and is an element of the Growing Australia’s Critical Technologies Industries budget measure announced in the 2023-2024 budget.

The Australian Centre for Quantum Growth (the Centre) will establish itself as a strongly branded, single ‘front door’ for the quantum industry and broader quantum ecosystem in Australia. The Centre will build genuine, strategic and lasting relationships spanning industry, research, consumer and government stakeholders to drive innovation and translation. It will accelerate the growth of the quantum industry in Australia and increase Australia’s global competitiveness by supporting greater collaboration and coordination of research and development, focusing on industry-led solutions that boost the adoption and diffusion of technologies across Australian and international markets.

The Centre will build awareness and promote quantum technologies and their applications to end users. It will also ensure ethics and security are a foundation of the Australian quantum ecosystem by promoting ethical technology adoption and awareness.

The objectives of the program are to establish a Centre that:

  • grows the Australian quantum industry and promotes collaboration in quantum technologies so as to foster interstate and international trade and commerce
  • facilitates improved coordination of research and development with a focus on industry-led solutions
  • educates industry and end users on the opportunities presented by quantum technologies and their numerous applications
  • promotes the ethical and secure adoption and development of the quantum industry
  • deepens Australia’s relationships with key international partners, enabling the transfer of knowledge and capital, whilst retaining ownership of our sovereign Intellectual Property
  • fosters gender equality and First Nations Peoples’ participation in the industry.
