Discovery: Science to Innovation

We Grow the Quantity and Value of Your Innovation Assets

Creating innovation “feedstock” from science requires identifying and appraising your science assets and creating the mechanism through which they can be focused and translated into intellectual property that can be harnessed

We use proprietary tools to identify and comparatively map science and innovation inputs and outputs across sources showing where a target institution stands and what they can lever

We have planned innovation institutions now operating for 20 to 30 years

Our Discovery Competencies

Research pattern analysis
Global and national knowledge center leadership mapping
Research organization structure demand trends
Alternative research organization models and structure options
Discovery bridge structure business planning
