Introduction of the Project

――NOE (Network Of Excellence) Project ――
The Institute of Statistical Mathematics (ISM) has promoted the NOE (Network Of Excellence) Project since 2010.
ISM aims to build a framework for advancing strategic research, to new scientific methodology (the “fourth paradigm”), and to pursue a new approach to collaborative research system by forming the research network in each field.

Aims and goals

  • To promote more active research collaboration between statistical mathematics researchers and researchers in other fields
  • To develop and expand research both in statistical mathematics and other research fields
  • To makes it possible to connect various research fields and to expand collaborative researches through hubs from ISM, as the core organization, serves
  • To promote integration research and to create new study fields
  • To establish the new style, the network-type, of the corporative research

Outline of the project

It is necessary to use the large scale data and integrated research for the solution of the complicate problem in modern society.

The NOE (Network Of Excellence) has been requested from each community, which ISM serves as hubs because the research field of statistical mathematics can go across the various research fields. Therefore, as one of the Inter-University Research Institutes, ISM has promoted the NOE Project since 2010.

The experts of each domain from industry, government and academy are assigned as members of the Advisory Board of the project. With the advice from the Advisory Board, the managing committee of the NOE Project decides how to promote it uniformly.

ISM reconsidered the research structure and reorganized the NOE-type centers in 2016-2018. With continuous consideration regarding the cooperative relationship with the Research Organization of Information and System (ROIS), the parent organization of ISM, social conditions and requests from each community, and ISM promote the NOE Project continuously to develop research activities rapidly and extensively.
