Abstract:The relationship between economics and technology, as well as their interaction in production productivity, project management and in technology transfer processes are bere reviewed. Over the last two decades there has been an increasing interest by economists in the technologist's view of technical change and its mechanism . The author looks at the zone between technology and economics, the ‘technological economics’, and discusses the theory of innovation recently sketched out by Nelson and Winter. The relevance to project management and technology transfer of contemporary writing by economists leads to the view that there are welcome signs of a convergence of the conceptual models now emerging and tbe practical problems of technology management and movement.
