HOW DO YOU DISCOVER NEW INSIGHTS?
Step 1: Start with a scan
Here the goal is to get birds-eye view of the landscape. We want to answer questions regarding the amount of research conducted, type of studies reported, and get a sense of how much data is within the scope of our interests.
We will search Pubmed, Google Scholar, and other databases to identify the available literature.
Overlapping search strategies will be used to refine broad searches into focused topics. Pending the hits retrieved from scanning, searches on sub-topics may be pursued or omitted from the search strategy.
Step 2: Scope the relevant studies
Step 3: Review in-depth
Leveraging Science with Intellectual Property
Intellectual property is not just for lawyers. Here it played a major role in the decision to innovate new ingredients.
In their mission towards sustainability, CP Kelco wanted to combine two waste streams and upcycle them into a new product, eliminating waste and increasing their product portfolio at the same time.
We performed a two-step analysis, starting with an in-depth review of the scientific literature supporting this novel product as a prebiotic.
In parallel, we conducted a freedom-to-operate analysis to identify the existing intellectual property related to the manufacture, composition, and use of the proposed product, outlining challenges and opportunities to the production and sale of their new product.
