Keywords: technological transfer, TOPSIS method,innovations
Abstract: In modern times, the business success of enterprises is increasingly the result of the development of science and the accelerated introduction of new advances. Innovations are becoming the key to success. Under these conditions, the importance of technology transfer is also becoming a main "strategic way of meeting the challenges of globalization in business" (Mayer and Blaas, 2002). With the increasing importance of technological transfer, increases the interest in the theoretical elucidation and empirical research of various aspects of its implementation in enterprises. In view of the above, the aim of this paper is to propose a method for the preliminary assessment of alternative technology transfer options based on the use of the TOPSIS method (The Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) (Hwang and Yoon, 1981). It allows an initial assessment and selection of technological transfer options on the base of preliminary selected important criteria.
