Atos builds global R&D lab for cybersecurity, HPC and quantum computing

Atos has officially opened its new global Research & Development Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the greater Paris metropolitan area, France. The new 8,000 m2 lab, which hosts around 350 of Atos’ highly qualified engineers, provides a modern space dedicated to research in quantum computing, high-performance computing, edge, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

Supported by the Ile-de-France Region and built on Atos’ existing site at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs almost 1,000 people, this lab is a milestone in Atos’ strategy to develop and globally position the historical site of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Region as a strong center of technical expertise. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing research program and the first major quantum industry program in Europe, benefits from an investment of €5 million from the Ile-de-France Region as part of its ‘Smart Industry’ strategy, adopted in July 2017.

Innovation to support the fight against global warming

Decarbonization is a key priority for Atos. The company is committed to reducing the global carbon emissions under its control and influence by 50% by 2025 and to achieve “zero net emissions”, by 2028. The research developed in this new laboratory, meeting the highest environmental standards, will focus on innovation to support the fight against global warming, such as using quantum calculation or the energy efficiency of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. Another example is the development of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be able to predict and optimize energy consumption based on the workload and the energy available in the electricity providers’ grids.
