Linknovate has developed a software platform targeting tech seekers -enabling them to search across millions of data points (sources), draw insights with advanced visualization tools, save topics to stay posted on the latest, connect with those with the answers- and tech providers -enabling them to market their capabilities, connect with new clients and partners, access grants and business opportunities-.
In the NIR-VANA project we enable innovators and innovation advisors to search for potential partners, competitors and technology trends using Linknovate. Through Linknovate they can search using keyworks in the areas of expertise of their interest. The results can be filtered by source (conferences, publications, grants, patents, trademarks, news, web monitoring), entity type (Corporations, Small Companies, Universities, Research Labs), Date, Location, Grant money and Grant Origin. Several value-added data analytics graphical representations are offered, such as: Data Source Distribution, Entity Distribution, Topic Trends Evolution over time, Commercial Readiness Level, Documents Authors Per Year, Public Funding Amount of public money flowing to the topic (Grants), Entity Collaboration Graph, Entity Distribution Per Country, Relevant keywords per year
From NIR-VANA and through an integrated search box we connect to Linknovate services.
