We were established in 1986 as a 100% subsidiary of Nippon Steel for technology and patent surveys and information provision. Later, we incorporated additional functions such as market research and training services, and now we are undertaking investigations and research projects for a wide spectrum by clients: government, other public offices, academic societies, industrial associations and business enterprises.

We are a group of professionals not only analyzing and verifying information but also offering suggestions and recommendations from new perspectives. Our specialists representing the three areas of technology, market, and intellectual property, provide a variety of information. It is analyzed in a multifaceted and comprehensive manner, and it helps clients in making decisions on business judgments. Our services also include orientation and training courses, language training programs overseas and other such personnel training services as well as translation/interpretation.

With the business integration of Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metals in October 2012, we made a new start as a general think tank of the Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation Group, changing our name to Nippon Steel & Sumikin Research Institute Corporation ("NSRI").

Your continued patronage would be greatly appreciated.
