Places are limited and will be allocated according to the following criteria:

  1. UK-based: Applicants must be students at UK universities or UK residents.
  2. Age: Applicants must be over the age of 18 to take part in the hackathon.
  3. Skill level: Teams will be created with balanced skills based on advanced, intermediate and beginner.

Applications close on 31 May 2024. Use case announcements, applicant selection, and team allocation will take place after this.

The hackathon is part of the NQCC’s SparQ programme, aimed at exploring and raising awareness of the current capabilities and limitations of quantum computing technology, as well as nurturing the talent pipeline and convening stakeholders. The hackathon provides students and researchers an opportunity to tackle real-world problems set by user organisations. There will be prizes for the top three teams, as determined by a panel of judges. Information on the 2023 hackathon can be found here: https://www.nqcc.ac.uk/uk-quantum-hackathon-2023/
