The Quantum Innovation Centre provides investors, technology providers and business leaders with an open innovation community, enabling them to identify market driven investment opportunities.

The Quantum Innovation Centre team has created a fresh, new forum for both large and small businesses, government and academia in which each can combine their resources in a market-led approach to innovation.

A lean approach to innovation starts with understanding customer needs and competitor offerings in relation to those needs – customers buy benefits not technology. Quantum has developed three approaches to help businesses assess their current capability and optimise their innovation strategy.

  • Innovation assessment framework
  • Product development planning and investment
  • Technology capability strategy
