Technology Scouting Solutions

Helping to Complement R&D and Engineering Departments

Many organizations reach outside their organization to access technical knowledge in specific pre-defined areas.  The approach of posting technical challenges via intermediaries, has been used for years to supplement and complement an organization’s internal R&D and engineering departments.

 

There are three major reasons that this approach has been popular.

  • Provides access to expert solvers or networks that they currently don’t have access to.
  • Provides an IP buffer mitigating the risk of IP over disclosure and protecting the company’s freedom to operate.
  • Allows organization to outsource the review process, which until now has been extremely manual, requires many eyes and iterations to determine if a submission is worthy of further review.

Below is an overview of our Technology Scouting Solutions offered, identifying the components of each offering and the general pricing. We also offer customization of these solution sets.
