Innovation intelligence: our service
Our innovation intelligence service uses our advanced semantic innovation search tools, our network of qualified organisations, our knowledge of research projects and funding in five phases:
- Analyse your competences, interests and KPI’s
- Scout and analyse external technologies and stakeholders
- Contact stakeholders and spot opportunities
- Analyse funding opportunities and develop innovation projects
- Validate the results together with you
Going through the innovation intelligence process will give you knowledge to discover more innovation ideas and initiatives, identify partners for innovation collaboration, realise more and better innovation projects and increase your opportunity to access public grants.
How does our service work?
- Phase 1: Set-up
First we analyse your competences, interests and performance KPI’s. Then we set up Wheesbee, the unique semantic search tool developed by our partner Innovation Engineering, to discover new technologies and partnerships, and manage the innovation intelligence process in a structured and collaborative approach.
- Phase 2: Innovation and partner discovery
We search, discover, analyse and monitor external technologies, innovators and end users in your area of interest. We tap into combined databases of funding research projects, European, US, WIPO, Japanese and Chinese patents – overall more than 40 million – all translated in English, as well as 18 million papers and scientific articles published in Open Access. Together with your team we analyse opportunities, define innovative ideas and evaluate possible high-level stakeholders for collaboration.
- Phase 3: Stakeholders and opportunities
We organise meetings with you and a set of stakeholders for collaboration or partnerships, and identify and connect you to innovation opportunities.
- Phase 4: Funding
We analyse public funding opportunities to co-finance your innovation projects, and jointly evaluate the pros and cons of the most appropriate schemes to help you decide which funding to apply for.
- Phase 5: Validating
Together with you, we validate the activities performed and the innovative projects that are valuable for your strategies, in line with the agreed KPI’s.
