Transfer of technologies: a cross-disciplinary taxonomy

By Arnold Reisman


Transfer of technologies (TT) takes place among various kinds of players, takes on various kinds of modalities and is done for various motivations. Its literature is very disjoint and disparate. It transcends several academic disciplines and professions. This paper presents a taxonomy defining the field in its entirety and delineating all of its facets in a manner that is parsimonious yet discriminating. Many potential uses for the taxonomy are identified. These include more effective teaching of TT subject matter.Technology transfer Web-based technology transfer Internet transfer of technology Illegal technology transfer Technology transfer law Technology transfer process Motivations for technology transfer Management of technology Innovation management Technology transfer curricula Diffusion of technology Barriers to transfer of technology Research utilization Research-technology management R&D management Socioeconomic development Intellectual property Knowledge utilization Meta research Taxonomy Classification
