Abstract [en]

As human resources play a crucial role in international transfer of technology (ITT), adequate training of personnel on both sides of the arrangement-the technology supplying (TS) and the technology receiving (TR) organization-becomes necessary. Developing the required skills and competence for a successful ITT requires not only the knowledge and teaching ability of the TS but also the knowledge and willingness of the TR to learn. Many of the problems encountered in training are due to inadequate identification and analysis of the training needs and attributes of thc training environment. This paper discusses the pivotal role of human resources in ITT and uses the experience of Swedish firms in China, through joint venture and licensing operations, both to conceptualize training and to highlight some of the crucial issues that practitioners need to look into in connection with identification and analysis of human resource training for ITT. Evidence identified planning, sharing the responsibility for training, appropriateness of training, motivation and experience, location, education prior to training, importance of R&D staff and post-training problems to be among the major issues.
