Technology transfer can be defined as the transfer of technological intellectual assets such as skills, knowledge, equipment, and manufacturing methods from one place of production or developed to another, through conventional legal or otherwise methods. Strengthening productive productivity and building a strong and dynamic economy requires the expansion and deepening of the industrialization process, in which technology transfer plays a key role.
The rapid advancement of technology around the world and the increasing competition in the national and international business environment are causing industries to move towards high levels of productivity and innovation. This move will lead industries to meet some of their technological needs, both in terms of equipment and in terms of processes, through foreign partners.
Many large industries meet most of their infrastructure needs through foreign purchases and import most of the technologies they use from abroad.
One of the major problems facing industries is their difficulty and challenges in using new technologies, and fully imported technology cannot be used, and the organization has serious challenges in using these products and new technologies.
In this collaboration model, the university can collaborate with the employer in several steps in the field of equipment purchase and technology transfer:
- Providing solutions and technical advice in the field of modern technologies in line with the requirements and needs of the employer
- Review and monitoring of technical documents and price offer provided by foreign consultants and sellers of goods, equipment and services
- Receiving and collecting technical documents related to the purchased equipment and matching the technical documents provided by the foreign company with the needs of the employer.
- Technical and qualitative testing of equipment by selected university reference laboratories
- Reverse engineering in order to localize technology and move towards internalization
