The Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology will enhance and secure Australia’s lead in the global race to develop strategic information technologies based on the laws of quantum physics. Our success will establish access to unprecedented communications security and computing capability for Australia. It will enable Australia to participate in the information technology industry of the twenty-first century in a way that it failed to in the twentieth century. It will afford Australia with significant global prestige, and it will transform our nation’s knowledge base and our capacity for future innovation.
