Identifying Strategic Focus Areas


To determine WV’s technology strengths, Battelle
asked three core questions:


What are the established and emerging science and
technology R&D
core competencies

in WV?


Which of these core competencies coincide with significant
market opportunity



thereby constituting key technology
niches or “
technology

platforms
” that may drive
technology
-
based economic development for WV?


What is West Virginia’s

current competitive position

for
technology
-
based economic development?


BUSINESS SENSITIVE

Discerning Technology Research Strengths:
Quantitative/Qualitative Analysis

Qualitative Analysis


Use of extensive field interviews
to identify how core
competencies can be translated
into sources of innovative
technologies/products for
development (platforms).


Key characteristics:


Applications orientation


Address current as well as new,
emerging market opportunities


Interdisciplinary and often cross
-
institutional


Picks up emerging areas not
always captured in quantitative
data


Links research to platforms
through market analysis

Quantitative Analysis


Identifies research strengths
through statistical analysis that
includes the following:


Extramural Grants


Publications


Reputation Rankings


Patents


Use of OmniViz clustering
analysis of patent and grant
awards to identify research and
technology
areas where both
concentration of activity and
excellence are demonstrated.
