The main goal of the project is develop a Model for Technology Surveillance (TS) in the university environment using the Web 2.0 technologies. For the development of the model is considered the main problems of the traditional TS approach. Also, are considered the advantage and mitigation forms that can be obtained from the Web 2.0 technologies for the university context. The main tasks are:
Technology surveillance (TS) can be seen as a particular branch of knowledge management (KM) primarily focusing on technology related information. It constitutes a systematic process including the activities of gathering, organizing, analyzing, and disseminating information from internal and external sources to assist organizations in managing risks in their operational and strategic environment. We focus on TS in a university environment where different departments, research groups and individual researchers critically depend on up-to-date technology-related information in their field.
