Our Vision

Very few scientific methodologies have been developed for and applied to service activities, whereas businesses of the service sector produce more than three quarters of the developed world’s economy today. Our Service Science Research Center brings the data-centric methodologies into the service fields — from marketing, supply chain management, management engineering, to modeling of social systems. In order to integrate diverse disciplines, we connect researchers in various fields through collaborations with hundreds of universities nationwide, under our project of the Network-Of-Excellence (NOE) for service science.
