HQS participates in NEASQC (NExt ApplicationS in Quantum Computing) project

Press release of HQS.

Researchers, businesses and innovators from EU join forces to boost industrial quantum computing applications

HQS is part of the NEASQC (NExt ApplicationS in Quantum Computing) project to develop application driven software for quantum computers in the framework of the quantum technologies flagship. HQS will work on quantum chemistry application together with Total, AstraZeneca and National University of Ireland Galway (ICHEC).

HQS Quantum Simulations – 14 October, 2020 – is pleased to announced its participation in the 4-year European Project NEASQC. NEASQC brings together academic industrial experts to investigate and develop a new breed of Quantum-enabled applications that can take advantage of NISQ (Noise Intermediate-Scale Quantum) systems in the near future.

One of the greatest challenges in the development of quantum computers is considered the highly complex interaction of hardware and software. NEASQC project gives the opportunity to find the most efficient and disruptive applications in the short to medium term even while hardware is

The development of new materials requires the understanding of material properties at the atomic level, where the laws of physics are determined by quantum mechanics. In practice, the calculation of properties of small systems brings existing classical computers to their limit. At the same time, quantum mechanical simulation is one of the most efficient fields of application for quantum computers.

HQS’s experience in providing software to facilitate the upcoming revolution in computer-aided materials design will be combined with the know-how of Total, AstraZeneca and NUIG (ICHEC) to work together and bridge the gap between the recent proof-of-concept quantum chemica
computations on NISQ processors and actual, industrial-scale quantum chemistry problems. To this aim, we will create software tools to intergrate classical quantum chemical codes with quantum computing (QC) modules.

HQS Quantum Simulations, is a European pioneer in the field of Quantum Simulations and develops quantum algorithms to predict molecular properties for performance materials, especially for chemicals and pharmaceutical companies. We are specialist in developing bespoken simulation software that models at the quantum level, delivering greater precision and speed than traditional methods.

Our intention is to share our broad expertise in quantum decoherence, noisy quantum gates, and solid-state physics and develop industrial use cases for NISQ machines. We are more than happy to contribute and build boundaries dedicated to NISQ industrial application.

Several global organizations in chemical and pharmaceutical industries constantly face challenges to launch better products faster every year. Developing Industrial and Financial Use Cases, which is one of NEASQC objectives, with a practical quantum advantage for NISQ machines could provide a significant technological impact for the whole industrial world.
