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.
