Qureca launches Quantum Error Correction (QEC) Project website to accelerate end-to-end quantum computing solutions 

Innovate UK’s Industrial Strategy Challenge-funded QEC Project is a consortium building an error-corrected quantum computer for commercial applications and Qureca is one of the commercialisation partners in the consortium.  QEC Project has launched the website https://www.qecproject.co.uk/ to promote and communicate the consortium’s activities and operations. 

This consortium intends to overcome today’s noisy-intermediate quantum computer’s challenge to deliver commercially relevant computation advantage. The consortium is building a user-oriented quantum computing ecosystem with commercial applications in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations. Eleven partners are collaborating in this consortium to solve three technical challenges in building scalable quantum computers which include: 

  • Scaling current quantum computers to millions of high-quality qubits 
  • Developing hardware-software solutions capable of implementing highly efficient error-correction protocols. 
  • Translating an error corrected quantum computing solution into real commercial benefits.

Led by Universal Quantum (UQ) and supported by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Hartree Centre, Qureca has joined with leading industry and academic research institutions to form the QEC Project consortium. The other partners include Riverlane specialising in Quantum Software Developer, supply chain partners Edwards, CPI TMD Technologies, and Diamond Microwave, end-users Rolls-Royce, commercialisation and dissemination experts Sia Partners, and academic research groups from Imperial College London and the University of Sussex. Check out the Partners page to find more details about the partners and their roles in the consortium briefly discussed below:    

QEC project is using UQ’s unique approach based on trapped-ion technology to build the scalable quantum computing hardware. Riverlane is developing quantum software solutions through the co-design of a modular quantum computer prototype (iQPU), in collaboration with UQ, enabling better error correction. Rolls-Royce is developing commercial application tools for the execution of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations that provides foundation for quantum advantage in aerospace industry.  

Edwards, CPI TMD Technolgies, and Diamond Microwaves ensure to provide a fully functioning platform for QEC Quantum Computer.  The academic research group at Imperial College London and the University of Sussex will contribute to the design of quantum error correction techniques to be developed with other project partners. Commercialisation partners Sia Partners and Qureca will exploit and disseminate the QEC Project results and capabilities of partnerships within the consortium.   

All the latest updates regarding the consortium activities such as the progress of consortium’ members, conferences or event participation or blogs can be found in the Latest News section.

In addition to the website, social media webpages on LinkedIn and Twitter will act as key marketing tools in both attracting new end-users and updating the consortium’s activities and services.
