Starting operations in April this year, the NordiQuEst project brings together a consortium of seven partners from five Nordic and Baltic countries to connect world-leading traditional HPC resources and quantum computers across national borders with the aim to establish a quantum computing platform customised to the needs of the region.
ENCCS is now joining forces with NordIQuEst to deliver a two-day training workshop covering the fundamentals of quantum computing (QC), including:
- Introduction to key concepts: quantum states, qubits, quantum algorithms
- QC programming in high-level languages for use cases in optimisation, finance and quantum chemistry followed by testing quantum programs to esure their correctness
- Overview of the main QC hardware approaches
- Integration of QC with classical computing: hybrid classical/quantum algorithms and HPC-QC systems.
