Keywords:innovation, technology transfer, R&D, technology channel
This paper investigates research and development (R&D) channel of technology transfer in countries like Poland, Germany, United Kingdom and United States. The article examines the role of R&D in innovation process and advancement of these countries. The article also investigates the extent to which enterprises from chosen for the research countries engage in R&D channel in innovation process. Both the OECD and European Union support the idea of strong engagement in research and development processes. The results of investigation support the idea that countries with high development in research and development activities are more innovative and more open to new technologies and innovation. Also countries which are innovative are more adapted to the possibilities offered by the elaborate and risky R&D activity and investigate more in this kind of technology transfer.
An analysis of the development of R&D expenditure at regional level in the light of 3% target (2009), European Communities.
