Call Starts for Applicants to Lead the Project for Research and Development of Enhanced Infrastructures for Post 5G Information Communication Systems/Pioneering Research (Initiative to be Commissioned)
August 7, 2020
On August 7, 2020, the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (hereinafter referred to as “NEDO”) will start a call for applicants to lead the Project for Research and Development of Enhanced Infrastructures for Post 5G Information Communication Systems/Pioneering Research (initiative to be commissioned).
The fifth-generation mobile communications system (5G) is an advanced technology more sophisticated than the fourth-generation mobile communications system (4G). While companies around the world have been launching commercial 5G services, they are also enhancing the capabilities of 5G further, e.g., ultra-low latency and simultaneous connections of multiple terminals, and calling this enhanced system “post 5G.” Post 5G is expected to be used in a variety of industrial applications in such fields as manufacturing plants and automobiles and to become a potential core technology in delivering international competitiveness to Japanese industries.
This project aims to develop core technologies of information communication systems tailored to post 5G (hereinafter referred to as “post 5G information communication systems”) in order to enhance infrastructures for developing and manufacturing such post 5G information communication systems in Japan.
More specifically, the project aims for pioneering research and development regarding technological challenges that relate to the development of post 5G information communication systems, which may not be commercialized for 5G but are highly promising for the latter half of the post 5G era and onward to the following generation (so-called 6G).
