Abstract [en]

Technology intermediaries are seen as potent vehicles for addressing perennial problems in transferring technology from university to industry in developed and developing countries. This paper examines what constitutes effective user-end intermediation in a low-technology, developing economy context, which is an under-researched topic. The social learning in technological innovation framework is extended using situated learning theory in a longitudinal instrumental case study of an exemplar technology intermediation programme. The paper documents the role that academic-related research and advisory centres can play as intermediaries in brokering, facilitating and configuring technology, against the backdrop of a group of small-scale pisciculture businesses in a rural area of Colombia. In doing so, it demonstrates how technology intermediation activities can be optimized in the domestication and innofusion of technology amongst end-users. The design components featured in this instrumental case of intermediation can inform policy making and practice relating to technology transfer from university to rural industry. Future research on this subject should consider the intermediation components put forward, as well as the impact of such interventions, in different countries and industrial sectors. Such research would allow for theoretical replication and help improve technology domestication and innofusion in different contexts, especially in less-developed countries. © 2014 Taylor & Francis.

Abstract [en]

This doctoral thesis addresses the technology transfer process in rural developing economies. Technology transfer refers to the movement of physical artifacts and knowledge from a transferor (e.g. a university) to a recipient (e.g. a cooperative or a producer). Many rural developing economies depend on rural enterprises engaged in small-scale production. These enterprises usually have limited market reach, inadequate financial margins, and low value added products. In this context, technology transfer commonly features large information and knowledge asymmetry between the transferors and recipients, the recipients’ dependence on government financial support, and the recipients’ underdeveloped business skills. Despite the importance of technology transfer for production improvements by enterprises in rural economies, little is known about how the two sides interact when technologies to fit the small-scale production context are transferred. To address this knowledge gap, this thesis focuses on how rural enterprises adapt and use technologies that are collaboratively developed with universities with the support of governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Empirically, the thesis analyses technology transfer aimed at improving silk, fish, and coffee production in Cauca, a region in Colombia. The thesis uses Situated Learning Theory, action research, and case study methodology. The thesis shows that i) intermediaries broker and facilitate (organise) the interaction between universities and cooperatives and rural enterprises; ii) there are seven features that enable technology transfer in rural developing economies and iii) ‘systems’ of technology transfer evolve in rural developing economies through analysis of problem formulation and problem solving as the mechanisms.
