A REVIEW OF TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER MECHANISMS
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This paper gives a review of the theory of technology transfer mechanisms. It is intended as an overview for practitioners. Technology transfer is defined and the technology transfer process discussed. Various technology transfer management tools are presented, such as technology reviews, technology space maps, and technology balance sheets. It concludes with the application of the theory in the form of a new proposed model for technology transfer. The aim of the model is to introduce the basic activities involved in a technology transfer project. The model can be used in a formal technology transfer strategy from the early planning stages, through the measuring of progress and output of the project to the post review of the project.
