Enabling Contributions to Industry

The National Institute for Mathematical Sciences (NIMS) is the only government-funded mathematics institution in which research and personnel development based on mathematical R&D and support of start-ups related to mathematics are pursued to establish a new mathematical ecosystem enabling mathematical contributions to industry.

Mathematics provides the most simple and perfect expression of all phenomena that occur in the world we live in. It has thus entered our lives having a great influence in all aspects of daily life and its functions and roles have become increasingly more important.

With the 4th Industrial Revolution coming, society at large demands that mathematics serve an expanded role beyond the laboratory. This has led to the emergence of public opinion regarding the necessity of related mathematics research and education as well as the strengthening of the functions of mathematics.

To meet such national and social demands, NIMS places industrial mathematics at the forefront of its pursuit of strategic R&D projects and the tackling of practical issues faced by industry and seeks to achieve a healthy cycle of recurring achievements, in order to contribute not only to the field of mathematics but to industry as well.

NIMS actively pursues R&D partnerships with businesses to promote innovative ideas in mathematics and assist in the development of start-ups that have the potential to surprise the world over, and also aims to establish a problem-solving system and develop specialized programs for start-ups engaging in mathematics.

Through appropriate modeling, all problems of the world including those faced by industry lead to mathematics. To find solutions to such problems, the knowledge and methodologies of all fields of mathematics need to be utilized. Upon leveraging its partnerships and by balancing growth across all fields of mathematics as its assets, NIMS strives to utilize industrial mathematics as a means of maximizing its problem-solving abilities to establish a mathematics ecosystem capable of making a substantial contribution to nation and society.

To this end, NIMS will maximize its efforts to contribute to the daily life of the public by expanding the role of mathematics upon combining the will and capabilities of all its members.

the National Institute for Mathematical Sciences will do its utmost to contribute to the lives of the people by expanding the role of mathematics, collecting the capabilities and will of all members.
