Written by a plethora of expert contributors from a range of institutions, the Handbook of Technology Transfer provides an engaging deep-dive review of technology transfer as a complex and dynamic process, applying different mechanisms characterising activities in a variety of countries.

The Handbook takes a fresh look at how technology transfer comprises at least four dimensions: the underlying mechanism of transferring knowledge; the role of individuals that trigger the transfer; the role of institutions where the transfer takes place, and lastly the role of governments and politics. Split into four distinct parts, this insightful Handbook fully examines each of these dimensions and the roles that each of them play in technology transfer, highlighting university institutions in Europe and North America in particular. Forward-thinking, it also delves into future innovation implementation in emerging economies where resources are limited, and the challenges faced as a result.

This enlightening Handbook will be an excellent resource for scholars of business management, economics and information technology. It will also be of great interest to policy-makers of innovation and entrepreneurship given its in-depth look at technology transfer and innovation.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook edited by David Audretsch, Erik Lehmann, and Albert Link is an important contribution to the canon on university technology transfer. Written by well-known academics, each of the chapters examines either vital issues in technology transfer or national technology transfer recipes. It will be essential reading for scholars, policy-makers, and practitioners interested in the current state of thinking about technology transfer.’
– Martin Kenney, University of California, Davis, US

‘This timely and important Handbook should be on the bookshelf of any scholar interested in the managerial or public policy implications of technology transfer. Its global scope and blending of new developments in both theory and practice are especially attractive. The editors have assembled a distinguished, interdisciplinary group of scholars, which is entirely appropriate, given the nature of the topic. Technology transfer spans a number of fields within the social sciences, business administration, and engineering, including management, economics, geography, sociology, and public policy studies. Each of these fields is represented in this cross-cutting volume. A “must-read” for anyone interested in this topic.’
– Donald Siegel, Arizona State University, US

‘This book brings together a number of informative perspectives that go in depth on the importance of technology transfer. The breadth and scope of the studies presented provide deep insights into the theory and practice needed to enhance economic development based on the development and deployment of advanced technologies into the marketplace. The authors draw together a set of international experiences and examples, delivering a unique global perspective.’
– Paul Zielinski, Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC), US
