Abstract

Given the significance of globalised technology for innovation in contemporary and future organisations in the Asia-Pacific region, the role of technology transfer is a central variable in current organisational capital. International technology involves not only the traditional problems of communicating between technocultures (that is, between scientists/engineers and business managers) but also those of intercultural communication (communication between people with different national/cultural identities). This paper explores the interfaces among technocultural and national identities as they relate to the international technology transfer process. Theoretical discussion is supplemented by analysis of the international technology transfer activities involving Australian participation in the aerospace and telecommunications industries.
