VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland launched a 20-qubit quantum computer in Espoo today. The quantum device is built by two Espoo-based players — VTT, one of Europe's leading research institutions, and IQM, Europe's leading builder of quantum computers.
The new quantum device is Finland's second quantum computer, following the 5-qubit machine built in 2021. Building a 50-qubit computer is already underway and is set to be launched in 2024.
The new 20-qubit quantum computer showcases Finland's resolve to develop its national quantum capabilities and Espoo's status as a leading European ecosystem in quantum technologies.
- Finland invested EUR 20.7 million in November 2020 to develop a 50-qubit quantum computer by 2024.
- The Finnish government has announced a EUR 70 million investment to transfer the device towards 300 qubits.
- Espoo is the location for an industry-driven piloting and development facility for microelectronics and quantum technology (Kvanttinova) and Micronova, the largest cleanroom in the Nordics, where both of Finland's quantum computers are located.
