New quantum computer in Sweden to be made available to industry and researchers

Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden is creating a new quantum computer with 25 qubits, funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. This computer will be accessible to Swedish industry and researchers, serving as a test bed for their algorithms and coming with a quantum help desk for support.

Since 2018, Sweden’s Chalmers University of Technology has been running a project to develop a Swedish quantum computer. Currently, the 25 qubits computer is often unavailable, since researchers are working to develop it further. To address this issue, the university will build a copy of the quantum computer, thanks to funding from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. Swedish companies and researchers will be able to use the new computer – which will also be accompanied by a quantum help desk – as a test bed for their algorithms.
