Six countries selected to host future European quantum computers

The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) has announced the selection of six sites across the EU to host and operate the first EuroHPC quantum computers: Czechia, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Spain. The quantum computing systems to be developed within these sites are to be made available to European users (scientific communities, the industry, the public sector, etc.) mainly for research and development purposes.

For background, the EuroHPC JU is a legal and funding entity launched in 2018 to enable the EU and countries participating in the EuroHPC to coordinate efforts and resources towards developing supercomputing facilities in the EU.
