A comprehensive understanding of intelligence to see further ahead
> Ahead of the game to act more effectively
Companies exist in a world in constant flux in which political, social, economic and technological situations change constantly. The sheer quantities of Information increase daily and circulate ever faster. As a result, company directors find themselves facing tough questions for which they need the right information at the right time in order to make the best decision.
For that very reason, in 2012, the Fibres Competitiveness Cluster established an economic intelligence department, which enables its members to access strategic information, targeted and qualified according to the current state of affairs and economic, technological and regulatory developments in the Cluster's various fields of strategic activity.

Economic intelligence? What's that then?
Economic intelligence means understanding and protecting strategic economic information.
Applying economic intelligence means a competitive advantage.
Economic intelligence can be defined as the series of coordinated actions of collecting, processing, analysing and applying strategic information in the interests of the company.
For economic players, it's all about exploiting each and every resource of the information and communication technologies and using human networks and their ability to exert an influence to acquire the means to be more competitive or more effective against the competition.
How does it work?
The Cluster's intelligence-gathering cell provides you with a custom service in order to better meet your needs: configuration of sources and definition of key words to find the most relevant information. The intelligence-gathering cell then handles the collecting and sorting of the information and forwards the results.
