About the Project

The post-K computer development plan initiated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in 2014, has set the goal to develop: (1) the next generation flagship supercomputer of Japan (the successor to the K computer); and (2) a wide range of applications that will address social and scientific issues of high priority.

RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) has been appointed to lead the development of the post-K with the aim to start public service around 2021. We are committed to develop a world-leading, versatile supercomputer and its applications, building on the research, technologies, and experience obtained through the use of the K computer.

The MEXT, R-CCS and its corporate partner will collaborate with several research institutions and universities to co-design the system and applications in order to address the high priority social and scientific issues identified by the MEXT.
