Moderating Effects of MNCs’ Country of Origin in the Relationship between Technology Recipient Characteristics and Degree of Inter-Firm Technology Transfer

While realizing that technologies, knowledge, and competencies are the technology supplier’s main source of competitive advantage, the current inter-firm technology transfer (TT) issue in international joint ventures (IJVs) revolves around the extent of degree of technologies that are transferred by...
