Technology Solutions

Working with U.S. manufacturers to accelerate business growth is MEP’s most critical role now and into the future. MEP is doing this by providing a framework that makes possible manufacturers’ pursuit of new product development, market expansion and diversification, and increased sales and profitability.

Technology Scouting

New or existing technology may be required in developing new products, as well as in correcting problems with products or processes. Unfortunately, small and mid-sized manufacturers (SMEs) may not have access to, or even be aware of, available technologies.

Technology Scouting uses a systematic approach to help SMEs find technology solutions. This method, combined with MEP’s extensive partnership network (access to government, university, and private sector research), allows companies to find technology solutions outside their industry.  This broader perspective can result in unexpected, but effective, solutions.

Technology Driven Marketplace

Successfully launching a new product or entering a new market requires real-world insight into specific barriers and opportunities (both technical and market) to make effective strategic, development, and investment decisions.

Technology-Driven Market Intelligence (TDMI) is a service that provides a systematic and comprehensive approach to technology-focused market intelligence. Unlike traditional market research, TDMI directly considers the technical and market viability of your asset and provides the customized actionable intelligence you need.
