Technology Scotland, as part of its work with the Venturefest Feeder Board, is delighted to be a delivery partner of ‘Art of Possible’, a new event programme for Glasgow and the West of Scotland designed to discover new revolutions in Emerging & Enabling (E&E) technologies.

The first of these broadcast events was held on Friday 17 March at the Glasgow Science Centre. Entitled Art of Possible: Innovating our Quantum Future, this unique evening workshop and wine reception was established to “bring attendees closer to Quantum”, highlighting how Glasgow is leading the way in this new and exciting £1 billion sector.

We were thrilled to welcome attendees from a large variety of sectors across Scotland, including Photonics, Design & Engineering, Health & Life Sciences, Academia and the Creative Industries to hear from 2 leading speakers working in Quantum Science: Prof. Miles Padgett of QuantIC & Dr Graeme Malcolm, Founder & CEO of M2 Lasers.

This was a fantastic opportunity for our diverse audience to expand upon their existing knowledge of Quantum, or be introduced to its potential for the first time, as well as to learn more about the opportunities available for their company, customer and Scotland. Our aim was to help people understand how the benefits of this technology will enable the STEM and Creative Industries to think of new applications and ways forward, in turn cementing Glasgow and Scotland as a hub of Quantum activity.

This event was the first in a series of ‘Art of Possible’ workshops to be held throughout 2017, so keep an eye on Technology Scotland’s website, newsletter and social media channels for all future information.

The Art of Possible team would also like to thank everyone at QuantIC, who helped us to organise this event in partnership with their QuantIC Shorts Film Screening.
