(InsideHPC) Germany plans to invest roughly €2 billion euros (US$2.4B) through 2025 on R&D for its first quantum computer and support technologies, the German economy and science ministries have announced.
Germany’s goal: build a quantum system within five years.
Germany’s Aerospace Center (DLR) will be the recipient of about €740 million in subsidies and will work in partnership with industrial companies, medium-sized enterprises and start-ups to create two quantum consortia, the economy ministry said, which also said it will spend €878 million on practical applications, such as better management of energy resources, traffic control enhancement and accelerated active substances testing.
The German effort fits within the larger global HPC trend in which major geopolitical players feel strategically compelled to develop their own “indigenous technologies,” starting at the chip level, rather than relying on core technologies produced by countries and regions that are potential rivals.
