Policy brief: Technology transfer between the EU and India, challenges and opportunities
This analytical report reviews the concept of technology transfer from a theoretical perspective and various approaches within different disciplines.
It also intends to gauge the perceptions of diverse stakeholders on the current challenges and opportunities associated to the process of
technology transfer between India and the European Union. The results of this study show that the challenges associated to technology transfer are mainly related to the lack of law enforcement as well as the lack of technically trained staff. As regards the opportunities, the semi-structured interviews carried out by this study underline the huge potential of the Indian consumer market as well as the reinforcement of scientific, industrial and commercial ties between both regions. This study concludes that technology transfer between India and the EU is already occurring through different channels and it could be further enhanced by an adequate policy framework between both regions.
