Global Technology Opportunities Analysis

by Alan L. Porter 7 Michael J. Detampel

Abstract

We present an approach to generate effective, efficient intelligence on emerging technologies. This approach draws on monitoring and bibliometrics to mine the wealth of information available in major public electronic databases. The approach uses new software to expedite secondary analyses of database searches on topics of interest. We illustrate the range of information profiles possible by examining R&D publications and patents pertaining to international electronics assembly and, more specifically, to multichip module development.
