missing technological trends may threaten the existence of a company
For companies, the early identification of technological change is an important task, because missing technological trends may threaten the existence of the company.
Extensive patent analytics can counteract, because patents represent the most extensive technological information (about 2 million registrations annually). Statistical analysis of patent information can be used for strategic assessment of companies and technology. This analysis can be used as an early warning system.
Statistical analysis of patent information is suitable for the strategic assessment of businesses and technologies. Information on patent applicants, inventors and technology, as well as the registration and issuing countries can be evaluated and used systematically. These analysis deliver graphs and tables, which show the trends in markets, technologies, competitors and development over time. An additional monitoring of technology provides dynamic analytics with high relevance and points out changes in patent landscapes.
The project partners of FURGY CLEAN Innovation will develop an innovative service of these analyses. Innovative and economically promising technology fields and markets will be identified through technology monitoring and technology foresight so that SMEs can identify potential future markets. Entrepreneurs can improve their strategic alignment in the field of research and development and initiate innovation processes at an early stage in order to secure important competitive advantages.
