Technology Transfer: A Third World Perspective.
Akubue, Anthony I.
Journal of Technology Studies, v28 n1 p14-21 Win-Spr 2002
Technology transfer models are based on assumptions that do not reflect Third-World realities. Obstacles to building indigenous technology capacity include multinational corporations' control of innovations, strings attached to foreign aid, and indigenous reluctance to undertake research. Four areas of development include foreign direct investment, joint ventures, licensing agreements, and turnkey projects. (Contains 21 references.) (SK)
