The HPCQS project sets out to integrate two quantum simulators, each controlling about 100+ qubits with classical supercomputers located at the Joliot Curie of GENCI, operated at CEA/TGCC, and the JUWELS modular supercomputer at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre. The project started on December 1, 2021, will last for four years, and has a €12 million budget. The software simulators involved include the Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM) and ParTec’s Parastation Modulo. Another quantum company involved will be ParityQC which will develop connections from the proposed middleware to ParityOS, as well as exploring potential use cases. Additional participants will include various organizations from the academia, research, technology, and industry sectors. More information about this project can be found on the HPCQS website at
