Helmholtz Quantum Center Launched at Forschungszentrum Jülich

By IQT News posted 07 Feb 2020

(FZ-Juelich.de) Quantum computer research will be established at Forschungszentrum Jülich as a national priority. The Helmholtz Quantum Center (HQC) will be a central technology laboratory which will cover the entire range of quantum research – from investigating quantum materials to developing prototypes. The project, which is funded by the Helmholtz Association with almost € 50 million, is launching in January 2020.
“Quantum computing will change our world – in science, industry, the economy, and our everyday lives,” explains Prof. Sebastian Schmidt, member of the Board of Directors of Forschungszentrum Jülich. “Establishing quantum computing in science and industry is one of the great challenges of the coming years and will require an enormous degree of cooperation. The Helmholtz Quantum Center (HQC) will be the Helmholtz Association’s central infrastructure to meet the scientific and technological challenges that building a European quantum computer entails.”
