We select and analyse collected external information and that of the organisation itself about science and technology, and turn it into knowledge for the companies to be able to foresee changes and minimise the risks arisen from their actions.

Our competitive intelligence system is an essential tool to get to know the real landscape of the sector, to identify future possibilities with the search for new markets and business opportunities, and to enhance design and implementation of business strategies.


We work together with the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (SPTO) and the Spain's School for Industrial Organisation (EOI), to provide a Technology Watch service to the companies through the OPTI Bulletin, which gathers information as regards:

  • Patents
  • Research projects
  • Technology news related to the sector

Technology Watch is an organised and structured system for search, detection and analysis of the technological scenario, with the aim of continuously disseminating and transferring information and knowledge in a timely manner so that the target companies are aware of the main trends in the sector within the field of technology.
