Acronym: EuroHPC PL

Duration: 01.01.2021-31.12.2023

Aim: The aim of the EuroHPC PL project is to create a specialised computing infrastructure. The platform to be developed is to enable access to hybrid resources such as supercomputers, quantum and neuromorphic accelerators, as well as dedicated services. The project also includes innovation and solution studies adapting research problems and software to the capabilities of exascale supercomputers and modern computing architectures. This will allow large-scale computing to be carried out directly within the framework of the EuroHPC JU (, i.e. a European system of exascale-class supercomputers, also built on technologies developed in Europe. This will enable, among other things, simulations, analysis of large data sets and advanced visualisations, which are essential tools in scientific research.

NCBJ tasks:

Platform for quantum simulation and medical imaging

This task develops a software platform for new medical imaging solutions that aim to transcend the limitations of techniques used in commercial PET scanners by:  (1) extending classical information with quantum information that can be obtained by studying the quantum correlations of photons emitted from the patient's body, (2) developing algorithms for image reconstruction for three-photon tomography using the computational capabilities of quantum machines and emulators, (3) developing tools for the generation of realistic PET tomography images for whole-body scanners.  The platform will develop tools based on machine learning methods as well as selected quantum algorithms. The division of research objectives presented above corresponds to the functional division of the software platform into: (1) tools for Monte Carlo simulation of the evolution of entangled systems of photons originating from the patient's body, (2) a software package for testing new methods of PET image reconstruction and (3) a service for the generation of realistic PET tomography images based on Generative Adversarial Networks models.

Collaboration: The project is carried out in collaboration with PET detector technology specialists from Prof. Paweł Moskal's J-PET group at the Jagiellonian University (, and quantum system modelling experts from the Quantum Particle Workgroup at the University of Vienna, led by Prof. Beatrix C. Hiesmayr (
