First contract awarded to supply quantum software to the NQCC

Dr Michael Cuthbert, the Centre Director of NQCC, said: “I am delighted we are able to make this first contract award, following a competitive process. The NQCC aims to address the challenge of scaling emerging quantum computing technologies with the goal of delivering a 100+ qubit machine by 2025. This contract award to Riverlane is an initial step, demonstrating how we will form collaborations across industry and the research community to grow our capability. The benchmarking suite, combined with noise mitigation processes will support delivery of useful tools for the centre’s technology, applications and user programmes.
