Intangible assets are the white gold of the 21st century. Economica works with one of the largest and most powerful proprietary patent databases in Europe. This database represents the global patentable innovation universe for all member states of the United Nations for well over a decade, for the OECD area the history has been more than 25 years. It is up-to-date and allows analyzes based on technological, institutional, human and spatial criteria, including identification of intra- and international innovation networks.

Economica's research agenda includes the creation of brain-gain and brain-drain balances (national, regional, sectoral), the overall evaluation of patent portfolios with cross-links to production sites and foreign trade dynamics, life-cycle analysis of technologies, evaluation of research, technology and technology innovation programs and projects, the identification of innovation hot spots and emerging technologies (weak signals) as well as competitive intelligence.

Apart from this, the Economica team uses its thematic expertise to create original, proprietary innovation, currently as lead partner for the creation of tactile 3D models of world-renowned museum expositions of the Belvedere and the Manchester Museum (not only) for blind and visually impaired people.
