Czynniki określające mobilność technologii w skali międzynarodowej
MetadataShow full item record
Nonmaterial character of technological know-how accounts for its high potential mobility. In reality the technological know-how is not mobile as it could be assumed from Its potential possibilities of dissemination. T hat is due to a number of factors appearing both on the side of the seller and buyer of know-how. The first group of factors — such as degree of the know-how novelty, degree of its complexity, existence or lack of patent protection for a given technology, definite conditions of the market in industrial branch and geographical sense — determines the owner’s propensity to sell technologies and exerts an influence on selection of the technology transfer form. The second group of factors, which includes — first of all — widely understood absorption capacity for technologies, determines preferences of the buyer.
