In spring 2023, the OpenSuperQPlus project gets underway. It is part of the European Quantum Technology Flagship and the successor of the project OpenSuperQ. The project involves a total of 28 European partners from 10 countries. The consortium plans to develop a 1000-qubit quantum computing system within seven years. It foresees use cases in quantum simulation for the chemical industry, in materials science, in solving optimization problems and in machine learning.
In a first, 3.5-year long, stage "OpenSuperQPlus 100", the consortium aims at developing several systems for evaluating hard- and software as well as at the deployment of a user-oriented 100-qubit system for the first quantum applications. Also, it will prepare the second stage by investigating critical components and making technological decisions needed for a 1000-qubit quantum computing system.
