Germany's progress in the application of quantum computing
Quantum computing promises large economic potential, especially in application and downstream value creation stages. To benefit from this, it is important to know the ecosystem to support the successful industrial application of this technology. The Quantum Technology and Application Consortium (QUTAC) aims to play a decisive role in shaping the development of a sovereign quantum computing ecosystem in Germany, in order to strengthen the competitive advantage of the business location in Germany and in Europe. To do so, it is important to accelerate the process of developing quantum computing towards industrial applicability. It is therefore recommended to regularly monitor the quantum computing ecosystem and to identify potential areas of improvement. To this end, QUTAC has developed a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) framework of 24 KPIs, which includes all relevant stakeholders and drivers, to represent Germany’s performance in applying quantum computing.
