📂Generate a region profile

An example use case in which we analyse a region for industrial policy.

Analysing economic topics in a region

Assume you are someone working for a city or district, and you want to find out:

  • Which companies exist in your area overall?

  • Which companies in your area are working on specific topics?

  • Which companies worldwide specialise in a specific topic for which there is a gap in your regional innovation cluster that you would like to fill?

Supporting the local economy in your area typically requires you to explore various topics and company profiles. That's why the webAI tool offers several ways to search for these topics.

1. After subscribing to webAI Lead you login with your credentials on dashboard.istari.ai

2. Choose your region

You can use filters to limit your search to a certain region. In your role, you usually want to look at your local region. This region can be a single area like a city like Frankfurt or an area made up of several districts, e.g. the Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar around Mannheim and Heidelberg.

Identify one specific region

For a specific area, simply use the drop-down filters to find your area, like in the case of “Frankfurt”. If you do not find it, try to find the next bigger area around it (e.g. you cannot find the french city of "Montpellier" directly in the “District” filter list, but you find its supercategory “Hérault”). You can also select multiple regions.

For more specific information about the regional units, see Administrative units.

Identify a region consisting of several administrative units

In some cases, like e.g. in the case of the Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar around Mannheim and Heidelberg, you will have to include several local entities. In this case, you need to choose “Mannheim, Stadtkreis”, “Heidelberg, Stadtkreis”, and “Rhein-Neckar-Kreis” from the District-drop-down menu.

3. Choose your topic

By text

Let’s assume you want to know which companies use the word "hydrogen" or their German, Spanish or French equivalents on their website. To get the results, just enter ”hydrogen” or “wasserstoff” or “hidrógeno” or “hydrogène" into the filters.

By indicator

Now, take the example from above and assume that you only want to see the companies that have a high or very high sustainability indicator (click here for more information). In this case, you need to add another filter under "Show advanced filters". It is sufficient to use "high", since this will also include all firms that are classified as "very high".

4. Results

If we combine all of these search criteria, we can identify all 32 companies that mention "hydrogen" in Frankfurt am Main and that have a high sustainability intensity. We can inspect our results more closely on the interactive map on the left or in the preview table on the right. With this, all you have to do is download the data.

5. Download your company short list

All you have to do now is click on the Download data button below the preview. Before receiving the file, you will see how many credits this will cost you and confirm that you want to download the data.

After downloading, you can open the downloaded file with Excel, for example, or import it directly into the CMS.
