Abstract
This paper provides a review of existing research on the effect of technology transfer on regional development. Process approaches have received not much attention in innovation field of research. To fill this literature gap, we apply a process lens to a well-established field of technology transfer and diffusion. A review of existing literature is realized to provide an analytical framework able to identify all the phases of technology transfer and diffusion process.
