    11h50 - 12h10

    IQM is focusing on a Co-Design approach where hardware and software are developed hand-in-hand. The resulting application-specific quantum computing stack can be seamlessly integrated into an HPC infrastructure, such that the quantum processor is utilized in an accelerator approach. To achieve this integration IQM is also building HPC-specific software and hardware tools. Collaborating with domain experts such as Atos, IQM believes is key to develop application-specific quantum accelerators to HPC.
