“This book exposes the elements necessary for the implementation of technology watch activities. It is a useful tool for those interested in implementing this type of exercises in your company, independently or through third parties, enabling them to understand its rationale, its usefulness and the way how are conducted; exercises which results in a process of capacity building to analyse and interpret information that will become useful knowledge”
