Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship

CITE was created to consolidate INESC TEC’s significant investments and experience in the development of internal processes and tools to manage R&D results, and to organise the resulting knowledge and competences.

At CITE we have a specific expertise in Innovation and Technology Management & Policy and Technology Entrepreneurship. The activities held by our centre promote the development of conceptual frameworks, methodologies and tools used both in advanced consulting and executive training programs for private and public organisations.

At CITE, we have been developing and exploiting a set of national and  international  research  opportunities  in  collaboration with international partners such as the Executive Agency for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) , ISO/TC 279 ‐ Innovation  Management; UT Austin Portugal,  MIT Portugal and Carnegie Mellon Portugal in Engineering and Public Policy.

CITE is the Centre in charge of coordinating the activities of Enterprise Europe Network - Portugal at INESC TEC. Co-funded by COSME and H2020, Enterprise Europe Network is the world's largest support network for SMEs with international ambitions. It provides international business expertise with local knowledge across a range of targeted services - international partnerships, innovation support and  personalised advices on a series of topics from funding & financing to technology transfer or IP management, just to name a few.

Key account management services (KAM) for SME Instrument beneficiaries and Enhancing innovation management capacities services (EIMC) are carried out in addition to the standard Enterprise Europe Network services in support of innovation, technology transfer and research.

Canvas Framework for Performing Systematic Reviews Analysis

Authors
Almeida, F;

Publication
Multidisciplinary Journal for Education, Social and Technological Sciences

Abstract
<p class="Textoindependiente21">The systematic review of the literature is a fundamental methodology for analyzing critically the existing literature on a given research theme. They are designed to be methodical, replicable and guide the author in identifying the main lines of investigation and conclusions in each scientific domain and, in addition, help them in the identification of new directions of research. However, the systematic review process is typically viewed as too heterogeneous, complex and time-consuming. In this sense, it is pertinent to propose a new approach for conducting systematic reviews that may be more agile, not only in terms of development, but also in the analysis of the results of a systematic review process. This article presents a canvas framework for conducting a systematic review composed of nine blocks and based on a set of identified good practices found in the literature, in which it is possible to easily identify all the steps of the process, options taken, and main results.</p>

Structure and challenges of a security policy on small and medium enterprises

Authors
Almeida, F; Carvalho, I; Cruz, F;

Publication
KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems

Abstract
Information Technology (IT) plays an increasingly important role for small and medium-sized enterprises. It has become fundamental for these companies to protect information and IT assets in relation to risks and threats that have grown in recent years. This study aims to understand the importance and structure of an information security policy, using a quantitative study that intends to identify the most important and least relevant elements of an information security policy document. The findings of this study reveal that the top three most important elements in the structure of a security policy are the asset management, security risk management and define the scope of the policy. On the other side, the three least relevant elements include the executive summary, contacts and manual inspection. Additionally, the study reveals that the importance given to each element of the security policy is slightly changed according to the sectors of activity. The elements that show the greatest variability are the review process, executive summary and penalties. On the other side, the purpose of the policy and the asset management present a stable importance for all sectors of activity. © 2018 KSII.
