The project’s total investment cost has been capped at $7.6 million. Half of the funding for the project comes from the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU). The member countries of the LUMI-Q consortium will contribute the remaining half of the financing.
The LUMI-Q consortium comprises nine European countries: Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, and Sweden. It aims to deliver a superconducting qubit-based quantum computer with a minimum of 12 qubits, providing academic and industrial users with quantum computing capabilities.

“Through the LUMI-Q resources, European users will get access to a new type of computational infrastructure that combines some of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe with the latest in European quantum computing technology,” said Mikael Johansson, manager for quantum technologies at CSC – IT Center for Science, a LUMI-Q consortium partner.
“Through quantum-accelerated high-performance computing, research and development can take almost unimaginable leaps of innovation. We are excited to be part of and committed to this development.”
