Abstract
Celem artykułu jest wskazanie motywatorów i barier w procesie transferu wiedzy. Punktem wyjścia jest fakt, że obecna współpraca pomiędzy biznesem a środowiskiem akademickim jest niezwykle istotna dla rozwoju biznesu i tworzenia w jego ramach wartości. Zarówno przedsiębiorstwa, jak i organizacje B + R uznają rolę tej współpracy, niezbędnej do tworzenia zróżnicowanych produktów i usług, a także budowania przewagi konkurencyjnej. Praca została oparta na krytycznej analizie literatury przedmiotu i pokazuje wstępne rezultaty trwającego projektu, którego celem jest zbudowanie pojęciowego modelu transferu wiedzy. Pierwszym rezultatem było zidentyfikowanie czynników, które uznano za bariery i motywatory transferu wiedzy oraz - konsekwentnie - za działania innowacyjne. Dla przedsiębiorstw (poziom mikro), regionów i krajów (poziom makro) są to kluczowe elementy wzrostu i rozwoju. Metodologia wykorzystana w artykule bazuje na przeglądzie literatury przedmiotu, który pozwolił zidentyfikować główne aspekty transferu wiedzy - zarówno pozytywne, jak i negatywne - oraz umożliwił stworzenie kwestionariusza, wykorzystanego jako narzędzie w badaniu przedsiębiorstw w wybranych krajach (służyło to pokazaniu motywów działania w różnych kulturach). Wśród czynników wpływających na transfer wiedzy respondenci najczęściej wymieniali współpracę nauki i biznesu. W artykule wskazano też kilka czynników, które dla pewnych badanych przedsiębiorców okazały się stymulantami, a jednocześnie dla interesariuszy stanowiły bariery. Wśród nich były: koszt współpracy, komunikacja, kompetencje, dostępność centrów transferu technologii. (abstrakt oryginalny)

The present paper results from a literature review carried out as part of COTRANS (Conditionings of Knowledge Transfers and Innovative Activity of Enterprises). COTRANS is an international research project including partners from Portugal and Poland (Faculty of Management at University of Gdansk, Faculty of Finance and Management at Torun School of Banking and School of Management and Technology of the Porto Polytechnic). The project aim is the development of a conceptual model on Knowledge Transfer.(fragment of text)
