  Abstract

 

Technology transfer has become a hot topic in business, industry, nongovernmental organizations, governments, and academia in the past everal years (Baker, David, & Soucy, 1995; Johnson, Gatz, & Hicks, 1997). With an increase in the speed of technology transfer, especially from the West to the developing world, issues of technology transfer demand special attention. There is a need to develop a universally accepted view and definition of technology transfer by integrating the various models. Such an integrated model would include sociocultural, economic, and political factors pertinent to the adoption and diffusion process. This draws upon the existing definitions, views, and models of technology transfer to provide a conceptual model of international technology transfer that encompasses sociocultural, economic, and political factors that bear upon the adoption and diffusion of technology.
