Evaluating the success of the technology transfer process and determining the best case study method

Atoosa Khorram

Technology in today's world is an important factor affecting the development of countries and hence, developing countries are seeking to transfer technology from developed countries. Accordingly, technology transfer can be considered as a very important process in the acquisition of technology that requires prerequisites for its proper operation. Among these prerequisites is choosing the best method of transfer. In this regard, the present review study is conducted aimed at studying and evaluating the success of the technology transfer process and determining the best method. Based on the findings, it can be concluded that the selection of the appropriate method is effective on the rate of technology transfer success; also, criteria such as development, adaptation, dissemination, and application of technology can be considered to measure the success of technology transfer.
