One of the targets of the EuroHPC JU is to develop and support a highly competitive and innovative quantum computing ecosystem broadly distributed in Europe contributing to the scientific, industrial, and digital leadership of the Union, capable of autonomously producing quantum computing technologies and architectures and their integration on leading HPC computing systems, and advanced applications optimised for these systems.
The overall objective of this call is to select hosting entities for quantum computers, which will be acquired by the EuroHPC JU.
The specific objectives of this call are the following:
• Selection of hosting entities and conclusion of a hosting agreement: The EuroHPC JU will select hosting entities for quantum computers and will conclude a hosting agreement, which will permit to establish a stable and structured partnership between the EuroHPC and the hosting entity for the acquisition, integration and operation of the quantum computer.
• Integration of the quantum computer to EuroHPC Participating State supercomputer infrastructure systems.
• Operation of the quantum computers for the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking
Deadline: June 30th, 2022
