Launching the world’s first Centre for Quantum and Society

On November 3rd, Quantum Delta NL launched the Centre for Quantum and Society (CQS). This is the world’s first centre of expertise for the societal impact of quantum technologies.CQS stands as a co-creation Centre where businesses, governments, societal organizations, scientists, and citizens come together to research and co-create ethical, legal, and societal standards. It aims at guiding the development of quantum technologies and their applications to the benefit of society, and boost social readiness levels.

‘LUMI-Q’ quantum computer will contribute to a pan-European network

A consortium by the name of LUMI-Q has been selected, by the European Joint Undertaking EuroHPC, as one of the projects to host new European quantum computers.

Our community members SURF and QuTech contribute to the project – which is supported by and ties in closely with the QDNL CAT 1 Programme – to build a hybrid high-performance computing and quantum computing (HPC+QC) platform.

The parties combine their strengths and work together with the consortium partners to enable a hybrid classical-quantum workflow between the high-performance computers of LUMI and SURF and the quantum computer of LUMI-Q and the quantum computers in the Quantum Inspire network. This will provide Europe with a powerful infrastructure to experiment with new hybrid algorithms and workflows that combine the best of supercomputers and quantum computers in one network.

The consortium’s quantum computer will be located in Czechia at the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Centre.
