Regional Economic Intelligence Program

In Auvergne, small FIRMS can SEE BIG!

The Regional Economic Intelligence program is a new service exclusively devoted to very small and small- to medium-sized businesses in Auvergne. Its goal: develop the economic intelligence techniques of SMEs and company groups.

This jointly-financed service allows SMEs to utilize tools traditionally reserved for large companies, so that they may innovate and become more competitive. The program, launched in January 2012, will continue until the end of 2013.

The PRIE offers 2 types of services:

‘Programme VolcanIE’: Coaching and consultation

- Coaching: 3 days of training within a company (fundamental concepts, fore sighting and research tools, information security)

- Individualized consultation within companies: 6 days of sessions by an EI specialist (diagnosis of your company, defining benchmarks of progress, action plans, internal organization, transfer of tools, evaluation…)

ADIT Cell: Benefit from the services of EI experts

- Access to a EI unit carrying out short assignments (4 – 5 days – results within 5 weeks). Examples of assignments: identifying and researching qualifications of actors :partners, competitors, clients…; precise benchmarks; investigation; field research…

- Establishing web tools for collective fore sighting (only for cluster and business groups)
