The future of quantum computing in Europe has begun in Ehningen: Since January 2021, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has had exclusive access to a quantum computer operated by IBM at its location in Ehningen, Baden-Württemberg. This has ushered in a new era of technology in Germany that connects stakeholders from research and industry, builds expertise in the area of quantum computing and paves the way for the practical application of qubits.
Seize this opportunity to use the IBM Quantum System One quantum computer and its 27 superconducting qubits for your research projects today! Because it’s not just Fraunhofer employees who can access the quantum computer. Fraunhofer also offers access opportunities for external partners such as universities or companies.
Your data will be safe when you use the quantum computer, because contractual regulations for operating the quantum computer are subject to German law, and European and German data protection regulations are complied with. All project and user data remains in Germany at all times.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has also been granted cloud access to various IBM quantum computers in the USA since April 2020.
