Quantum computing is expected to impact all areas of research that could utilise computational modelling. Quantum computers need tailor-made algorithms and software. Quantum programming requires taking advantage of quantum physical phenomena that are absent in classical computing, like superposition and entanglement. It also requires fundamental rethinking on several other levels.
NordIQuEst aims to provide a quantum computing platform customised to the needs of the Nordic region. The infrastructure will be tightly coupled with the pre- exascale LUMI supercomputer. NordIQuEst will thus strengthen the existing Nordic HPC infrastructure by adding a quantum computing environment. Users will enjoy a versatile, yet unified environment consisting of several Nordic quantum computers and quantum computer simulators. This increases the overall value of the ecosystem, by enabling prompt uptake of high-end quantum computing technologies in a wide range of research communities
NordIQuEst is a project funded by the Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC, NO), CHALMERS University of Technology (SE), CSC - IT Center for Science (FI), DTU Technical University of Denmark (DK), SINTEF (NO), Simula Research Laboratory (NO), University of Tartu (EE), VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (FI) and it runs from 1st April 2022 to 31st March 2025.
