Author: Joseph P Lane

Technology transfer is defined as a process for conceiving of a new application for an existing technology (Reisman, 1989). It is a complex process involving a wide range of participants in multiple inter-dependent activities (Jolly, 1997). Given the complexity and the variety of participants, how does one model and manage technology transfer? This paper describes the major elements as all being part of a single process, two initiating forces, three critical events, four activities, and five stakeholder groups (Lane, 1999).
