Abstract

This study aims to discuss the effects of individual emotion and corporative environment on technology transfer, and explores corporative environment moderating effects between emotion and technology transfer. Corporative environment includes interpersonal relationship and social relationship; technology transfer includes explorative organizational learning and knowledge sharing. To predict individual- and company-level simultaneously on technology transfer, hierarchical liner model (HLM) is performed. This study investigates 194 workers and 43 technology companies. The result shows emotion and social relationship were significantly related to technology transfer, and interpersonal relationship was positive moderating effect in the relation between emotion and technology transfer, but social relationship was not. The major limitations of this study included that workers in technology companies have heavy workload, so they do not have enough time to response the questionnaire, and obtaining questionnaires was not easy, so self-selection may be generated. The limitations hope to be solved in future studies.
