Leibniz Supercomputing Centre becomes German host for one of the six first European Quantum Computers

Earlier this week, the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) announced that the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) will be one of six sites to host the first European quantum computers.

With its project “European Quantum Computing for Exascale-HPC” (Euro-Q-Exa), LRZ will integrate quantum processors into supercomputing and thus make the new computer technology more controllable and accessible for users.

In several research projects funded by the federal government as well as by the Bavarian Hightech Agenda within the framework of MQV, LRZ has been working on a Quantum Integration Centre (QIC) for more than a year to facilitate this integration. Based on this foundation, Europe's quantum computer will expand the existing quantum ecosystem in Bavaria and allow for the exploration of a broad spectrum of application scenarios for a wide range of research disciplines as well as for industry and society.

EuroHPC JU is a joint initiative between the European Union, European countries and private partners to develop a World Class Supercomputing Ecosystem in Europe. More details here.
