At the centre of the PRIME Faraday Partnership’s Technology Watch service is a growing series of technology and market reviews for managers and engineers in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) producing ‘smart’ products. Its aim is to help them maintain their awareness of new technologies and markets and thereby seize opportunities to innovate they might otherwise miss. The service has attracted considerable interest among users and observers. In this paper the authors outline the process behind the development of Technology Watch’s library of publications with a view to encouraging others to critique and adapt it for deployment in other industrial sectors.
