Our research focuses on trans-disciplinary issues in various businesses in the leisure and cultural industries, such as the fine arts, transportation, hospitality, destination management and heritage sites. CLCS aims to be a leading research center, with emphasis on global contemporary and emerging issues relevant to practice communities. The roles of CLCS are:

: CLCS mindfully engages society and the practice community, by addressing societal and industry concerns in its research, e.g. management of stakeholder interests in tourism, using employee insights in business forecasting;
: CLCS is engaged in shaping the future of higher education in areas of service, leisure and cultural industries. It actively contributes to the development of innovative research-grounded learning environments.
