Helmi Projects on LUMI

Helmi is accessed through the LUMI environment. Users accessing Helmi need to be part of a LUMI project with allocated quantum computing resources. The first step is to create a LUMI project. All LUMI projects require a Principal Investigator serving as the Project Manager. A LUMI Project Manager is typically a leader of a research team or other senior researcher.

The connection to Helmi through LUMI is now accepting pilot phase projects.
