Abstract:
The thesis aims to identify and verify the key factors affecting transnational knowledge transfer (TKT) in the context of the EuroAid Asia Programme. This study extends the existing research on knowledge transfer (KT) by investigating the neglected area of TKT, an area which needs better understanding, given the rapid development of TKT. Compared to the KT at the individual, group, or organizational level, TKT is both more complicated to comprehend, and has received less attention. This study begins with a literature review of the definition of knowledge and KT, analysis of KT at different levels, and summary of a comprehensive set of factors that may influence KT. Then, in order to empirically explore the key factors affecting TKT in the EuroAid Asia Programme and to evaluate the relative importance between factors, an international Delphi survey is employed. Through the two rounds, experts mentioned twenty-four factors and provided explanations for their views. Based on these survey results, a factorial model is developed. The verified factors and the proposed model could help project participants better understand the process of TKT, remind them what key factors really influence the process of TKT and urge them to make an active effort to properly assess each factor before prioritizing the factors for management attention.
