Abstract

Technology transfer (TT) is a way of obtaining advanced techniques to enhance a country’s technological development. The International Technology Transfer (ITT) projects involve the cross-border transfer of technology to develop the local technology capabilities. In this work, a survey on valuable ITT studies and deep analysis of the most reliable ITT models have been presented. The aim is to identify the factors and sub-factors that influence the TT process. Analytical comparison of ten relevant models in terms of their objectives, dominant factors, major concerns and model limitations has been conducted. The main focus of this analysis has been on models construct, factors relationship, models contribution, models strength & weakness, and models reliability. The most influential factors of ITT process have been categorized as: Technology provider and technology recipient characteristics, integration of local and foreign actors, government policy, culture difference, transfer environment, nature of technology, mode of transfer, and management of TT program. Meanwhile, the outcomes of ITT process have been represented as economic advancement, knowledge and competency development, and project performance. This study provides a significant reference on ITT modeling process and presents a scholarly critique review on several ITT models.
