EuroHPC JU signs hosting agreements for six quantum computers
The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU), a tripartite partnership under Horizon Europe, has signed hosting agreements with six sites across Europe to host & operate EuroHPC quantum computers. The six new EuroHPC quantum computers will be integrated into existing supercomputers in Czechia, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain. The selection of these hosting entities, who will operate the systems on behalf of the EuroHPC JU, was made to ensure a diversity in quantum technologies and architectures, giving Europe an opportunity to be at the forefront of this field, and providing European users access to diverse and complementary quantum technologies.
These systems will be available primarily for R&D purposes to a wide range of European users, wherever in Europe they are located, to the scientific community, as well as to industry and the public sector. The upcoming quantum computer infrastructure will support the development of a wide range of applications with industrial, scientific and societal relevance for Europe, adding new capabilities to the European supercomputing infrastructure.
