Technical Collaboration

Technology Transfer | Technology Licensing | Technology-based Joint Ventures

In today’s world technology keeps on changing rapidly. Modern and sophisticated technology is important for further qualitative production & business expansion. There is quite a gap between technical advancement in developed and developing nations. Therefore, technical Collaboration or technology transfer through a cross-border joint venture is considered an important tool to bridge that gap and to amplify competitiveness, exploit opportunities and accelerate growth of business.

Technical Collaboration mostly happens when there is a product or technology that is not available in India and could be very useful for the growth of Indian market & there is a foreign company who is willing to share the technical know-how rather than form an investment based joint venture. Generally, the company receiving the technology gives the licensor or technology provider a minority stake in the business or gets into a licensing agreement based on royalty or sometimes a combination of both depending on the mutual interest of the parties.
