Oxford professor joins the leadership team for National Quantum Computing Centre

Leadership Instincts

Professor Simon Benjamin, Professor of Quantum Technologies at the University of Oxford, has today been appointed Deputy Director for Research at the National Quantum Computing Centre. An interim leadership team has been appointed to drive forward the development of the UK’s National Quantum Computing Centre. The centre will place the UK at the forefront of quantum computing, bringing together academia, business and government to address key challenges such as the scalability of this transformative new technology.

It is being created as part of the second phase of the UK’s National Quantum Technologies Programme, a ten-year, £1 billion programme to accelerate the development of quantum technologies, and will be established with a £93 million investment managed by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

The leadership team will be responsible for the design of the centre, including its operating model and community engagement, development of the process to determine technology platform priorities and the design of the building.

As part of their work, the leadership team will engage broadly with key stakeholders in government, academia and industry to establish a user community, create a roadmap for the development programme and establish a centre at the heart of the UK’s quantum computing community. The team brings together expertise and experience from across the UK’s quantum technology sector.


The development of the centre is being led by UKRI’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and Science and Technologies Facilities Council. Further information on its development will be provided later in the year.
