Royal Decree 936/2021, of October 26, of the Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence, regulates the direct granting of a subsidy to several centers of the Spanish Supercomputing Network, for the development of the Quantum ENIA project, within the framework of the Spain Digital 2025 Agenda and the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan
The main goal of Quantum Spain, framed in the National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence (ENIA), is to establish a solid quantum computing ecosystem in Spain, taking advantage of and promoting the talent of local researchers who are experts in this technology. This objective is based on four pillars:
- The deployment of a high-performance quantum computer.
- The development of useful quantum algorithms applicable to real-life problems.
- The creation of a remote access system in the cloud to allow industry and the public sector to experiment with new quantum algorithms.
- A training program to increase the capacities of potential users of quantum computing and so that all nodes of the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES) are capable of serving future users of these technologies.
