Themes of the National Quantum Strategy

The National Quantum Strategy has 5 themes to help realise the Australian Government’s ambition. Each theme has a set of actions that will be completed over the next 7 years.

Together these actions address the opportunities and challenges facing Australia’s quantum industry. They also provide the signals to attract investment from individuals, industry, academia and government.

The themes focus on the initial actions the government can take to create the conditions for a thriving quantum industry. But to sustain the quantum industry long-term, these actions require coordinated and collaborative efforts with states, territories, businesses and researchers, as well as close engagement with the community.
