Hear from a panel of experienced researchers and entrepreneurs as they debate, discuss, and plan Sydney's present and future quantum industry, including:

  • Impact: Why are quantum technologies something we want to achieve? How can they help our society?

  • Timelines: When will we see those benefits? What's happening now and what's still in the future? How do we maintain our forward momentum (without becoming disappointed)?

  • A flourishing ecosystem: What are the current roadblocks to developing a healthy, vibrant Australian quantum industry? How do we build wider literacy, drive diversity in the industry, and build the right talent pipeline for both researchers and entrepreneurs?
