|Title:||Technology transfer: A system analysis approach to the study of its features|
|Abstract:||The objective, components, organization, constraints, environment, adaptation, and development features of a technology transfer system are enumerated and discussed with illustrative examples from published papers. Three models -- Clark and Guba, Castasia, and Efercett Rogers -- of the technology diffusion process are presented. The factors influencing the diffusion of technology from one country to another, from one enterprise to another in one and the same country, and from one person to another within a group or an institution are mentioned. The psychological, educational, historical, political, economical, sociological and cultural characteristics of the giver and receiver of technological know-how and the differences in their scientific and technological development and information richness are important factors to be taken into account in designing a technology transfer system. The recommendations of Castasia regarding technology transfer and national policy on science and technology in Asian countries in the perspective of the overall national development of these countries are quoted.|
