What is ModuServ project about?

How to move towards service economy by accelerating dynamic innovation in services to foster economic growth and employment represents a European challenge. At the same time, changed patterns in value creation networks force also manufacturing companies as business service providers to explore and exploit the opportunities to use services as a platform for competitive growth in the international and domestic markets.


The overall purpose of this research project is to describe, analyze and evaluate how value is co-created in business services through modularity and collaborative business networks.
