        Nowadays, by developing and advancing sciences and becoming technology development processes more complicated, technical cooperation between companies is a substantial aspect of companies’ strategies and an important public policy for technology development across the World. Technology transfer issue, as a concept of technical cooperation is considered by researchers and managers of agencies and organizations, as the most important approaches in this regards. In this research, after reviewing the literature by using library studies, introducing the concept and describes various methods of technology transfer. After describing the different models of technology transfer and comparing indices used in each model with others, we compare and eliminate the common indices and the last selected 28 of most important criteria have been identified to present appropriate methods of technology transfer. We also classified the criteria into four general groups as : capability and policies of technology receiver, capability and policies of technology owner, common policies between technology owner and receiver, and technology features. Finally, some recommendations and research directions are provided for future researches. Paper Details
