— The major objective of this research was identifying and modeling of factors impacting successful technology transfer from Indian publicly funded R&D institutions to industry. Through a content analysis 27 variables have been identified, which are likely to impact a successful technology transfer. A conceptual technology transfer (TT) model and the hypotheses in terms of the identified variables were formulated. Through a questionnaire survey we have obtained the perceptions of 734 respondents from the concerned stakeholders on the relevance and importance of 27 variables in achieving successful technology transfer. The survey data was analyzed using factor analysis and regression analysis. The results of the empirical studies not only confirmed the conceptual model consisted of five TT facilitating factors and one outcome factor of successful technology transfer but also identified 10 critical variables that the stakeholders need to manage to achieve successful technology transfer.
