Simula in consortium to build one of the first European quantum computers
The LUMI-Q consortium will connect several existing European HPC centres to the new quantum computer, and make it accessible for R&D throughout the continent. Combining the consortium’s expertise in HPC and quantum computing, the offered solution will allow end-users to take immediate advantage of the quantum revolution in their computational modelling. This marks an exciting step for quantum computing in Europe.
The LUMI-Q consortium builds and expands upon the established LUMI supercomputer which is presently Europe's most powerful supercomputer, of pre-exascale capacity. It will provide a European-wide quantum computing environment integrated with major EuroHPC infrastructures.
