This chapter summarizes the results of the desk research. During the desk research phase more than 70 artikels, books and reports on technology transfer were examined. The majority focuses primarily on technology transfer between universities and companies. Some deal with technology transfer between public and private research centers others than universities and companies or even technology transfer between companies or intra-organizational technology transfer. The geographic dimension varies too. The majority deals with regional technology transfer, but also literature concerning national and international technology transfer was considered. The majority of literature was written by US authors followed by contributions from Germany, other European countries, and other parts of the world.
