Science Minister Anya Karlichik said that the government’s goal is to build a competitive quantum computer in Germany within five years, and to create a network of companies in the field of developing advanced applications.
“Today we started the mission of the ‘Made in Germany’ quantum computer – and now we are ready to go,” Karlichik said.
