The Program for Promoting Research on the Supercomputer Fugaku is established by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology for the early creation of results using Fugaku. The four focus areas are "future development and challenges to general human issues", "strengthening the strategies to protect the lives and assets of citizens", "strengthening the competitiveness of industry", and “research foundation" with the 19 selected projects below. Fugaku is available for the selected projects for free for early creation of results (2020-2022).

Please refer to the「FY2020 Program for Accelerating Achievements in Fugaku [PDF] 」in the "FY 2020 HPCI Priority Use Category" in "Awarded ProjectsThe webpage will open in a new tab." of HPCI website for the distribution of the computational resources among the projects.
