ThinkServices: Think Tank on Services Science and Innovation
In order to strengthen the ties between academia and the industry in the field of Services Science, ISS and the technology foresight center (OT) of the state of Geneva joined forces to create ThinkServices: a not for profit Think Tank on Services Science and Innovation.
Offering a "safe" place for reflexion (Thinking) and experimenting (Doing), ThinkServices is often described as a Think-Do Tank. With mission to help its members capture the dynamics of Services Science in a sustainable way, ThinkServices is organized around interdisciplinary focus groups (ThinkGroups)
ThinkServices currently hosts 3 such ThinkGroups with more in the pipe having expressed their interest to start new ones:
TG-DST : ThinkGroupDonnées, Société et Transparence
The first outcome of our work is ThinkData. A self awareness service for data protection and transparency successfully launched after one year of collaborative work.
TG-Core : ThinkGroupsur la Science des Services
TG-GECKO : ThinkGroupsurEconomie et Innovation de Services àGenève
