  • Katia Regina Evaristo de Jesus-Hitzchky Embrapa Environment


Technology impact assessment may be a helpful tool in the decision-making process. The present work suggests a method to evaluate the impact of technological innovation, providing information organized according to criteria and indicators in several areas where the innovation can be perceived. The method consists of a system that allows the analysis of: i) the innovation range starting from the generation of the significance index, and ii) the assessment of the innovation performance through the analysis of the performance indicators which will compose the magnitude index. This system has a support tool, the software “INOVA-tec v 1.0”, with information shown as a guide to allow a well-informed and a well-based evaluation.
