We first reported about Quantum Inspire in April 2020 as the first quantum cloud computing systems in Europe. Now the Dutch Research Council (NWO) has provided the consortium with a 4.5 Million euro grant to further develop the system. The consortium consists of TU Delft, Leiden University, Radboud University, HAS University of Applied Sciences, QuTech, TNO, Waag, Ministry of Defence, Malmberg, Zurich Instruments, Onderwijsnetwerk Zuid-Holland (ONZ), Leiden University Graduate School of Teaching and the system itself is physically located at QuTech in Delft, Netherlands. The funds will be used to develop systems with 50 qubits or more, design an intuitive and easily accessible user-interface and create a path towards the commercial use of quantum computing. More information is available in the news release posted on the QuTech website here.
