We are proud of being part of the “European infrastructure for Rydberg Quantum Computing (EuRyQa)”, a project that aims at establishing Rydberg quantum processors as a leading platform for scalable quantum computing in Europe.
Ultracold trapped atoms have recently emerged as one of the most promising physical platforms for digital quantum computing, having already demonstrated systems with more than 200 qubits (the computational unit of a quantum computer) with strong interactions mediated by their highly excited Rydberg states and a clear path to further scalability to thousands of qubits. To develop the next generation of fully programmable and scalable quantum computing systems based on ultracold Rydberg atoms, EuRyQa will bring together four complementary European Rydberg platforms.
Qruise will help provide a unique European solution for Rydberg-based quantum computing, together with the first pan-European benchmarking and standardisation of the technology.
EuRyQa is coordinated by the University of Strasbourg (France) and other partners include the SME PASQAL (France), the University of Stuttgart, the spin-off Qruise GmbH from the Research Centre Jülich, and the consultancy EURICE GmbH (Germany), the University of Amsterdam and the Technical University of Eindhoven (the Netherlands), the research institute Idryma Technologias Kai Erevnas (Greece), Associacao Portuguese Quantum Institute (Portugal), Università degli Studi di Padova (Italy) and the medium-sized company QM Technologies (Israel).
EuRyQa is funded under the highly competitive Horizon Europe programme (HORIZON-CL4-2021-DIGITAL-EMERGING-01-30) with a total budget of almost 5 million € over the next three years.
