This paper presents a new concept of modelling successful transfers of technological innovations across the boundaries of traditionally defined areas of industry. A summary review of work in the related topics is conducted. The proposed model of technological transfer includes a provision for the development of a new taxonomy of work tasks targeted for technology applications. The model also incorporates a matrix framework for representing a match between the generic components of work tasks, typical engineering projects, generic components of technology, and specific self-contained technologies. A validation procedure for application within an industry targeted for technology transfer is outlined.
