Innovate UK’s Industrial Strategy Challenge-funded Quantum Error Correction (QEC) Project is a consortium developing an error-corrected quantum computer for commercial applications. QEC Project has launched the website https://www.qecproject.co.uk/ to promote and communicate the consortium’s activities and operations.
This consortium intends to overcome today’s noisy-intermediate quantum computer’s challenge to deliver commercially relevant computation advantage. The consortium is building a user-oriented quantum computing ecosystem with commercial applications in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations. Eleven partners are collaborating in this consortium to solve three technical challenges in building scalable quantum computers which include:
Scaling current quantum computers to millions of high-quality qubits
Developing hardware-software solutions capable of implementing highly efficient error-correction protocols.
Translating an error corrected quantum computing solution into real commercial benefits.

Led by Universal Quantum (UQ) and supported by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Hartree Centre, leading industry and academic research institutions have joined the QEC Project consortium. Check out the Partners page to find more details about the partners and their roles in the consortium briefly discussed below:
QEC Project is using UQ’s unique approach based on trapped-ion technology to build the scalable quantum computing hardware.
Riverlane is developing quantum software solutions through the co-design of a modular quantum computer prototype (iQPU), in collaboration with UQ, enabling better error correction.
Rolls-Royce is developing commercial application tools for the execution of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations that provides foundation for quantum advantage in aerospace industry.
All the latest updates regarding the consortium activities such as the progress of consortium’ members, conferences or event participation or blogs can be found in the Latest News section. This area will be developed further in the coming months as more resources are added.
