Germany’s Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft said that it has signed a partnership agreement with IBM to research quantum computing. The cooperation will give access to the IBM quantum computers under the umbrella of the Fraunhofer competence network. The goal is to support research on technology, application and algorithms and to advance knowledge for the local economy and science.
The IBM Q System One quantum computer will be installed at an IBM Germany data centre near Stuttgart. The quantum computer will start to operate at the beginning of 2021. From April, interested companies and research institutions will have access to the IBM quantum computers through the cloud. The computer is currently installed in the state of New York. IBM will also provide technical support to Fraunhofer with the use of the IBM Q system.
Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft earlier announced a partnship with IBM to reinforce research on quantum computing technology. The German government will invest EUR 650 million over the next two years to support the transition of quantum technologies from basic research into market-ready applications.
