LUMI-Q consortium will host new European quantum computers

The European Joint Undertaking EuroHPC has selected sites to host new European quantum computers. The LUMI-Q consortium is among the selected projects. New quantum computer will be located in Czechia at the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Centre in Ostrava.
The LUMI-Q consortium includes two Polish institutes (Akademickie Centrum Komputerowe Cyfronet AGHc and Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences (NCAC PAS). Our colleague Professor Piotr Gawron, AstroCeNT group leader, represents NCAC among the consortiums.
Quantum computing can significantly improve the quality and effectiveness of research, allowing scientists to solve problems that are beyond the power of modern classical supercomputers. Quantum computing can help develop safer and more sustainable products and processes. They can find applications in complex financial analysis, astrophysics, cybersecurity, climate change forecasting, artificial intelligence.
