Effective Technology Transfer and Stimulating Entrepreneurship: Strategy and Examples
Abstract:Innovation and technology transfer are issues which receive considerable attention from business. Technological innovation, dissemination and adaptation are essential elements of many sustainable development goals. Business and industry are a primary source of innovation and provide optimum benefits when short‐ and long‐term enabling frameworks encourage the development, commercialisation and dissemination of technologies.

Business, also by developing and commercialising technologies, creates new markets, promotes small and mediumsized enterprises (SMEs) and transfers knowledge and builds capacity.
