CREAX tracks all technological developments — both in- and outside your domain — that could have an impact on your business and its long-term competitiveness. To do so, we have developed a unique, patent-based process to monitor evolutions and identify early signs of emerging novelties. Our goal? Anticipate breakthroughs and allow you to take action.
How does it work?
- After receiving a briefing, we perform a free pre-study to see whether your question can be answered using our `Game-changing study’ algorithms.
- Based on a `Game-changing technologies study’, we create a list of technologies, materials and new processes to emerge in your domain in the next two to four years.
- We assess the way each of these items will impact your business in the next ten years, and classify them as either an opportunity or a threat.
- Each of the technologies linked to your challenge will be analyzed according to six `innovation indicators’. These indicators are based on research reports, patent activity, citations, technology drifts and clusters. Together, they form a weighted score of every technology that is linked to your challenge.
- Every six months, we update the Game-changing Technologies and inform you if any changes have arisen. That way, you are constantly on top of possible disruption.
