Technology transfer refers to the acquisition or use of innovations or knowledge that is developed by other organizations or in other countries. Although technology transfer is an important source for knowledge and innovation, it is difficult to measure its success, and little research has been done to determine exactly what accounts for success.

Among the most consistent indicators of success are the realization of benefits, the meeting of functional and budget objectives, and increased user satisfaction.
