Evert Geurtsen, Co-Director User Engagement, NQIT and the Hub for Quantum Computing & Simulation, University of Oxford
NQIT and its successor the Technology Hub for Quantum Computing & Simulation is part of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, a programme set up by the UK government to translate academic work on quantum technologies into new products and services. It brings UK physicists and engineers together with companies and entrepreneurs to commercialise the technology and stimulate its economic application.
Evert’s background was in new product development in the international automotive industry and also founded his own ventures and raised investment. Immediately prior to his role in the UK NQTP he was Head of Licensing and Ventures for Physical Sciences at Oxford University Innovation.
