The Federal Institute of Sergipe (IFS) has as one of its goals to stimulate the development of
applied research and technological innovation. In this research we set up technological forecasting
in six campi of IFS in order to detect and analyze all research projects and technological
innovation, as well as intellectual property filed by the Center of Technological Innovation from
Federal Institute of Sergipe (NIT/IFS) at the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) in the
period from 2011 to 2014. The methodology based on technological forecasting presented
quantitative and qualitative results that showed a profile for IFS. As a result of this research, we
highlight the following areas most developed projects in the period considered: agronomy,
computer science, education and chemistry, and these are the focus of IFS innovative productions.
In addition, among the intellectual properties of IFS, the trademarks is the one that has the most
