Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on critical appraisal of technology transfer mechanisms between us, uk, europe, middle and far east Paper must be at least 4750 words. Please, no plagiarized work! The transfer of technologies however involves different issues, including global warming, national interests versus global impact, protection of intellectual properties, copyright, societal considerations, fitness for purpose, economic growth, and global competition, as well as outsourcing versus technological superiority. These issues often impact negatively on both the countries where the technology is transferred and the country which is transferring the technology. This paper will provide a critical look at technology transfer mechanisms between the US, UK, Europe, and the Middle and Far East Asia. It will evaluate the need and justification for global technology transfer which is essential to resolve global issues including global warming, as well as related technology transfer issues. This paper is being carried out in order to comprehensively assess the specific elements involved in technology transfer as well as the issues involved in such transfer processes.
There are different definitions of technology and technology transfer. Technology refers to the knowledge which is needed to plan, build, and implement production processes and possible services related to the process. It also refers to the identified utilization of scientific and technical tools for the creation of goods and services (Bozeman, 2000). Technology transfer is a process where two or more parties come to an agreement. Under these conditions, the recipient is able to secure a better ability to plan and create products or to develop the know-how in the operation of production facilities or service systems (Bozeman, 2000). .The mechanisms for technology transfer include the Cooperative Research and Development Agreements or CRADA (Department of Homeland Security, 2012). This mechanism is often used in most elements of the product life cycle. . It includes research, development, and evaluation. . Personnel, services, intellectual property, and other tools are also often needed for these processes. . Licensing agreement is also a mechanism in technology transfer (Department of Homeland Security, 2012). It includes a contract between the owner and the user allowing the latter to use the product in accordance with the contract. . Memorandum of understanding is also another mechanism. . This understanding sets-up a framework of cooperation between agencies and it facilitates operations and the sharing of resources (Department of Homeland Security, 2012). . .
