WHO ARE WE?

The Quantum Computing Application Cluster joins up academic capabilities to help expand and further develop the ecosystem for quantum computing and simulation across the Scottish Central Belt.

Combining expertise in quantum hardware and software and classical HPC, we

  • develop next generations of hardware and software for quantum computing
  • work with end users to identify computational challenges that can be addressed with quantum computing, developing software solutions and understanding the timescales for impact on each sector
  • bring added value to the training of PhD students and researchers at all levels across the traditional academic boundaries of physics, engineering, computer science, and HPC.


COLLABORATIONS

We are strongly integrated within the National Quantum Technologies Programme, and play leading roles in national and international programmes for research in quantum computing and simulation. We and are actively engaging with the National Quantum Computing Centre, as well as industry partners on the development of new technologies and end-user applications. Our work is supported by many programmes through the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, and the EU Flagship in Quantum Technologies.

Major programmes to which we contribute include:

UKRI
EU
  • PASQuanS, EU Flagship project (quantum simulation pillar, developing practical applications of quantum simulators)
  • AVaQus, EU FET Open project (Coherent quantum annealers by engineering novel superconducting quantum circuits)
