Abstract—The growing tendency of globalization and interdependency of economies is inferred in highly competitive and chaotic context for firms and universities. Due to the high competitiveness and changes that firms face, Technology Transfer (TT) is assumed as a key factor to success. A better management of innovation created in research units as well as a deeper and closer cooperation and communication of these units with the business sector are the biggest factor of hope and strengthening for the global economy. This study arises due to the growing necessity of the Electromechanical Department (DEM) of University of Beira Interior (UBI) to diffuse their studies and technology among their logistic, institutional and more importantly, enterprise partners.

Index Terms—knowledge, technology transfer, universities, companies, innovation, management, DEM
