Technology Scouting

In the current economic climate of constrained resources and shorter development time frames, looking outside the organisation is no longer just an option, it is a necessity.

TfI's 'State of the Art' analysis is a good start point when seeking new technology opportunities. These detailed assesments cover activity in research insitutions and commercial organisations. They identify the key movers both research and commercial in a sector. It provides the basis on which to judge technology development trends and begin the process of opportunity evaluation for your company. Tfi's most recent assesment was a review of Electroactive Polymers and the opportunity they offer to large component manufacturers. 

Our knowledge of academic centres of excellence and contacts with Universities around the world assists in the identification and development of new technical solutions for clients.
