Spain joins the race for the quantum computer and seeks to lead European initiative

Spain is eager to join the quantum computing train. The Government approved an ambitious project to launch a large device with these characteristics on national soil. This is so that laboratories, administrations, companies and universities can benefit from this emerging technology, which will be used in many processes over the medium term.

Carme Artigas, Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence, has approved a batch worth 22 million. This will allow the creation of a Spanish quantum computing ecosystem. It will be channeled through the Spanish Supercomputing Network. Participation in European bets is expected to increase the investment to 60 million euro in three years. The goal is to be a leader in the South of Europe by being the benchmark.

The project's goal is to create quantum algorithms with an approach that solves real problems, thus strengthening technological and industrial development in Spain, and creating highly skilled jobs. It will be operational by 2025. More than 12 organizations representing different autonomys joined forces to help realize the potential of an artificial intelligence type that Google and countries like China already use.

This decentralized vocation allows for an initiative to be born without a physical headquarters. However, it won't be required to access it. To be able access future benefits, one of the goals is to establish a service "in the cloud". An amount of five millions will be allocated. Other areas include hardware and the creation and maintenance of a new quantum laboratory, quantum chips and quantum labs. A budget of 10million will be allocated for this area. Quantum software will receive 7 million.

Quantum Spain is a network of centers located throughout the territory, promoted or led in part by national researchers. The Government promises that Quantum Spain will have a "positive impact on the economy as a whole", and also in the creation of quality jobs, structuring territory, and the attraction and retention talent throughout the country.
