Technology scouting

Comprehensive analysis of technology state-of-the-art through desktop research and interviews exploiting a network of industries, technology transfer centers and universities built up during the last two decades. IBT Solutions will strictly cooperate with the customers to provide effective outcomes such as:

  • Analysis of material to define the state of the art (e.g. scientific publications, patents, research projects, …)
  • Identification of the main players of the research (universities, companies, …)
  • Selection of technological and commercial potential partners
  • Comparative analysis of your products versus current solutions adopted by competitors

Support to ICT technology adoption

The key idea is to combine market drivers and technology scouting to:

  • Requirement collection, organization and management
  • Functional analysis of your systems and/or products
  • Identification of technologies available for your application field
  • Identification of the candidate subsystems where the adoption of ICT technology can produce the major impact
  • Definition of a technology adoption plan, including a deep scouting of the existing alternatives and suppliers
  • Active driving of innovation during the redesign and/or prototyping of your products
