QuaST — quantum-enabling services and tools for industrial applications

In the joint project QuaST, Fraunhofer IKS is working with nine partners to provide small and large companies with low-threshold access to quantum computers. The goal is for end users to require only minimal knowledge of quantum computing hardware and software, enabling them to quickly reap the benefits of this forward-looking technology.
