Scientific Program

This symposium will bring together leading researchers and developers, as well as current and potential end users for quantum technologies in healthcare applications. Through inclusion of both emerging and applied research, as well as sub-system development for quantum technologies and development of supply chains for critical components, our aim is to capture requirements, identify new applications and build collaborations for quantum technologies including magnetometers and quantum imaging in healthcare.

The symposium will be held at Strathclyde University’s conference venue at Ross Priory, on the banks of Loch Lomond, allowing an intensive programme of scientific presentation and discussion to be held over two days in a relaxed and quiet setting. 

Generous support from the Glasgow City Innovation District and the University of Strathclyde will cover registration, accommodation, meals and local transfers for invited participants. Sponsorship opportunities are also available - please contact for details.
