Description

The EuroHPC JU will select hosting entities for new European quantum computers and will conclude hosting agreements to establish a stable and structured partnership between the JU and the hosting entity for the acquisition, integration and operation of the quantum computer.  

The EuroHPC JU will procure at least two quantum computers in 2024 with a total EU contribution of EUR 20 million. The new quantum computers will be co-funded by the EuroHPC JU budget stemming from the Digital Europe Programme (DEP) and by contributions from relevant EuroHPC JU participating states. The JU will co-fund up to 50% of the total cost of the quantum computers. 

The quantum computers will be integrated into existing supercomputers operated by the hosting entities. The selection will aim at ensuring a diversity in the technologies and architectures of the different quantum computers to be acquired to give users access to different quantum technologies.
