Fraunhofer launches quantum computing research platform in Germany

In a joint project with IBM, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft will operate the quantum computer, installed in a center near Stuttgart, under German data protection law. The central point of contact for use of the quantum computer is the Fraunhofer Competence Network Quantum Computing, comprising several regional Competence Centers with various areas of focus. With this initiative, we are contributing to a German quantum technology ecosystem with international magnetic appeal, and setting a milestone for the technological sovereignty of Germany and of Europe. At the Hannover Messe Digital Edition on April 13 and 14, the network will showcase the opportunities the quantum computer is offering industry and research. The first IBM Quantum System One installed in Europe is now available to companies and research organizations that wish to develop and test applied quantum algorithms and gather expertise. Quantum algorithms are opening up brand new opportunities and much more efficient approaches — in the engineering, material and data sciences for example. The political, industrial and scientific worlds are working to advance quantum computing to be able to solve practical problems more efficiently sometime soon.
