“Get Access To External Innovation Via Technology Transfer In A Cost-Effective Way To Move Ahead”
WHAT IS TECHNOLOGY SCOUTING?
Technology Scouting is an essential element of innovation management system, which identifies emerging technologies, channels that technology related information into an organization and supports the acquisition of technologies. It is the starting point of a long-term and interactive matching process between external technologies and internal requirements of an existing organization for strategic purposes. It is known to be a part of competitive intelligence which helps decision makers to make strategic business decisions and also track their competitors’ IP and business strategies.
There can be no innovation and competitiveness without full awareness of the environment. To create new things, one must know of the existing ones.
