Quantum Spain kick-off meeting

The kick-off meeting of the Quantum Spain project took place on December 15th 2023 in Barcelona.

Quantum Spain aims to promote and finance a competitive and complete quantum computing infrastructure in Spain. It will provide the present Spanish quantum ecosystem with the necessary tools to develop a solid scientific and technological fabric around quantum computing and its applications in Artificial Intelligence.

The objectives of Quantum Spain are:

  • Acquisition and installation of a quantum computer based on superconducting qubits technology.
  • Providing access to the quantum computer and High Performance Computing devices for quantum technologies.
  • Development and research of novel quantum algorithms and their applications in AI.
  • Training programs, workshops, schools, seminars and other initiatives to bring quantum computation to all backgrounds.

PIC participates in the project through CIEMAT, within the work package that is building the team that will support the future users of the quantum computer and High Performance Computing systems for quantum technologies.
