Q-Exa project

The main goal of this project is to enable the users of a supercomputing center to explore a quantum computer in combination with HPC acceleration.

The Q-Exa project will deliver a state-of-the-art quantum computer demonstrator based on superconducting circuits for integration into an exascale system. The key requirements for Q-Exa is a 20 qubit quantum computer, a quantum computing emulator, and a software framework for solving scientific problems.

IQM and Atos - State of Quantum Research in HPC Centres

49% of HPC centres plan to adopt quantum computing technologies for the first time by 2023.

By 2023, 76% of HPC centres worldwide will be using the technology — the majority with an on-premises infrastructure.

27% of HPC global centres are already experimenting with quantum computing.
