We select and analyse collected external information and that of the organisation itself about science and technology, and turn it into knowledge for the companies to be able to foresee changes and minimise the risks arisen from their actions.
Our competitive intelligence system is an essential tool to get to know the real landscape of the sector, to identify future possibilities with the search for new markets and business opportunities, and to enhance design and implementation of business strategies.
