€36m for future computing technologies

The Jülich research centre in North Rhine-Westphalia has received €36 million to support its work on developing the computing technologies of the future.

In a statement on 4 January, the centre said that the funding would be used to set up further scientific divisions and bring in more than 100 additional scientists. It will enable the centre to continue its work in future-oriented areas such as quantum computing and neuromorphic computing, which is based on the functions of the human brain and is expected to result in better image processing and machine learning.

The majority of the money, which will be distributed over the next two years, comes from the federal education ministry, with €3.6m provided by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, according to Jülich’s breakdown of the funds.
