Science, Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship series

Edited by Dimitris G. Assimakopoulos, Ilan Oshri and Krsto Pandza

The development of emerging technologies demands a rapidly expanding knowledge base and intensive collaboration across organizational, institutional and cultural borders. This book is the first of its kind to focus on the management of key emerging technologies and their social and economic impact in Europe. Split into four parts, across seventeen chapters, the scholars offer multiple levels of analysis concerning the management of emerging technologies across various sectors ranging from nanotechnology, renewable energy and cloud computing to synthetic biology and particle therapy for cancer.

Chapter 5: Tools to support technology intelligence processes in integrated technology service providers

Subjects: business and management, knowledge management, organisational innovation, innovation and technology, knowledge management, organisational innovation, technology and ict


This chapter contributes to the literature on technology intelligence (TI) by describing the TI selected tools for an integrated technology service provider (ITSP) in the chemical and pharmaceutical area. ITSPs are defined here as companies created and owned by a mother company, and their main mission is to offer technological services to create value for their holding company. The goal of TI processes is to identify potential business opportunities and threats arising from technology development (Rohrbeck, 2006). The practical application of TI in industry lags, though, despite the increasing interest in TI from both scholars and industry practitioners, and not too many companies seem to be applying intelligence techniques systematically or running a regular intelligence system (Arman and Foden, 2010).
