JUQCA - Jülich Quantum Computing Alliance

JUQCA – short for the Jülich Quantum Computing Alliance – bundles Jülich’s activities in the development and application of quantum computing. The alliance supports the participating institutes in their scientific work and acts as a point of contact for internal and external partners.

Making quantum computers operational quickly

JUQCA is currently comprised of seven subinstitutes whose work concerns the theory, development, and application of quantum computers. The focus is on making quantum computers operational quickly.

The alliance cooperates closely with other subinstitutes that are involved in basic research on materials and quantum phenomena, for example, as well as in the development of components. This ensures that JUQCA members benefit from basic research and, on the other hand, that basic research is inspired by the system and application requirements identified within JUQCA.

JUQCA’s goals

  • Close networking and coordination to promote joint strategy development
  • Further increasing the visibility of Jülich’s expertise and potential
  • Coordination, consultation, and monitoring for joint (externally funded) projects
  • Integration of all Jülich stakeholders in the Helmholtz Quantum platform
