Transfer of technology and development: Key policy issues and recent national experiences
This course will discuss key issues related to the use of technology transfer for growth and development and present several national experiences with the transfer of technology for industrial development.
The first part of the course will review key issues that have a bearing on policies and strategies for the transfer of technology by developing economies to promote growth and development.
The second part will discuss the experiences of several developing economies in Africa, Asia and Latin America in using technology transfer to develop dynamic domestic industries.
Discussions will be based on the work of UNCTAD in science, technology and innovation policies, including the results of two forthcoming UNCTAD studies on the transfer of technology for development; the first on general science, technology and innovation and technology transfer issues and the second on selected case studies of technology transfer in developing economies.
The discussion will draw on evidence gathered by the UNCTAD programme of national science, technology and innovation policy reviews.
