ABOUT Linknovate

Linknovate helps their clients to detect the activity of competitors and potential partners by utilising data analytics for any topic of their interest. The company helps them understand the emerging technology key-players and experts behind those.

Linknovate has built a “discovery engine” (i.e. Google for innovation). They allow their clients to quickly access structured data about the companies they care about (newcomers, startups, competitors, potential partners) and the subject matter experts behind those technologies and companies. Linknovate’s approach provides lead Advanced Technology Offices, R&D professionals, New Product Development managers and Strategists with the data they need to understand the emerging topics key to their strategic and innovation efforts.

Linknovate’s role in the RECAP project is to serve as a pilot study of the different methods and models developed during this project. The distributed architecture of Linknovate’s product will allow the testing of different deployment configuration and strategies with real data in production services.
