Information @ a Glance

  • Technology transfer can mean many things — technical assistance to solve a specific problem; use of unique facilities; access to patents and software; exchange of personnel; and cooperative research.
  • Technology transfer mechanisms are Cooperative Agreements, Cost-Shared Contracts/Subcontracts, Licensing, The DOE Invention Licensing Home Page, Personnel Exchange Programs, R&D Consortia, Technical Assistance to Small Business, User Facility Agreements.
  • Technology transfer works on Agriculture, biotechnology, Chemical, Computer Science, Construction, Education, Electronics, Environment, Food, Health Services, Information Services, Machinery, Medical, Nanotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Safety, Software, Technology, Veterinary Science.

Innovative Methods on Technology Transfer

  • The need for technology transfer, especially to developing countries, has been recognised in various international fora. Over 80 international instruments and numerous subregional and bilateral agreements contain measures related to transfer of technology and capacity building. The technology-related provisions contained in such instruments follow different approaches, depending on the object and purpose of the respective instruments.

  • The adoption of technology-related provisions is an expression of States' willingness to cooperate internationally to redress or reduce the asymmetric distribution of scientific and technological capabilities in the world. There has been some success in implementation, but more needs to be done. A considerable gap exists between the intentions expressed in the agreed provisions and their effective implementation. 

  • Technology-related provisions are designed to deal with transfer of technology and capacity building for broad objectives or for specific targets, and the consequent obligations are to be met by one or several categories of addressees. For instance, the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and the TRIPS Agreements both refer to technology in a broader sense, whereas the Law of the Sea Convention deals specifically with marine technology and capacity building in the management, exploration and exploitation of marine resources. 

Indian Scenario

  • Technology Policy Statement (TPS) was formulated in 1983 with the basic objective of developing indigenous technology and ensuring efficient absorption and adaptation of imported technology appropriate to national priorities and availability of resources. It is aimed at attaining technical competence and self-reliance, reducing vulnerability particularly in strategic and critical areas and making maximum use of indigenous resources.

  • A Technology Policy is being formulated to provide focus on the development of indigenous technologies and to make India self-reliant and competitive in the technological field. 


  • During the last 40 years, chemists have developed an understanding of how an electron transfers from one group to another to create new compounds. Now a team of University of Washington chemists has found that the same ideas apply to transferring a hydrogen atom—an electron and a proton together. That understanding could prove important to scientists trying to devise new classes of chemical reactions.

  • RSV infects lung cells and can be life-threatening in very young children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. No vaccine or widespread antiviral treatment is available for the infection. A novel antiviral treatment combining nanoparticle and gene silencing technologies thwarts attacks of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) -- a virus associated with severe bronchitis and asthma, an animal study by University of South Florida researchers found.
