Technology Transfer

Technology transfer is the process by which basic science research and fundamental discoveries are developed into practical and commercially relevant applications and products. The magnitude stems from the fact that a research result may attract interest but only if there is any practical use, that patents may be granted and in order to implement that some one not essentially the researcher must come up. At this juncture the repression between the research institution and the private business functionaries gathers immense importance.


Exponential Growth of Technology in India has played an important role in all round development and growth of economy in our country. Technology can either be developed through own development and research or it can be purchased through indigenous or imported sources. India has opted for a sensible mix of indigenous and imported technology. Purchase of technology is normally called “Technology transfer” and it is normally covered by a technology transfer agreement.

‘Technology transfer’ means the use of knowledge and when we talk about transfer of the technology, we really mean the transfer of knowledge by way of an agreement between the companies or states. ‘Transfer’ does not mean the movement or delivery, transfer can only happen if technology is used. So, it is the application of technology and considered as process by which technology developed for one purpose is used either in various applications or by a new user.

Technology generally would comprise the following elements:

  • Process Know how
  • Design Know how
  • Engineering know how
  • Manufacturing know how
  • Application Know how
  • Management know how
The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like). Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
