Abstract

A well-accepted definition of technology transfer is “the movement of know how, technique, and technology across organizational boundaries.” If you accept this definition, then what is interesting about it is that nobody knows how to do it very well… as a nation, that is. Different nations do different pieces of it better than others. You find the Japanese running around looking at us to see how to do technology transfers from universities to industry, which they do badly. We run around looking at the Japanese to find out how to transfer technology from corporate R&D to manufacturing. And the Europeans are running around looking at both of us.
