CIDAUT Foundation, within its Department of Diffusion and Technology Transfer, has designed a Technological Watch structure intended to support both the own researching staff and the external businesses companies’ ones. This structure allows both kinds of users to remain fully informed about new emerging technologies, making the decision process easiest for all of them. To make this possible, an effective tool for the information management and technologies search has been developed and it is currently available, making possible and simplifying the quotidian use in those environments.
The Technological Watch Service - SERVITEC - provides information services on patents, legislation, available calls for funding and news related to the transport sector, such as new materials, safety, energy and environment, manufacturing processes and automotive technologies among others. This tool encourages companies to obtain useful information with the shortest delay and always in an accurate way, assisting them to adopt safer decisions. In addition this service provides companies with an approach to the technology demands and current technology offers inside the transport sector, both at regional, national and European levels.
This service is provided in a personalized manner to each requesting company by taking in to account their specific characteristics and needs. By doing it, the information provided is always adequate, updated and adapted to their specific requirements.
