Author(s): Mariana Kuzmanova

To conduct a comprehensive study of the impact of technology transfer processes on the innovative activity of enterprises methodological provisions were proposed, which include the following main stages: assessment of the level of competitiveness of enterprise products and its compliance with modern technological developments; analysis of the enterprise's needs for technology transfer; analysis of transfer resources (financial resources, human resources); assessment of internal possibilities of development of the transfer system; analysis of activation of technology transfer process; cost estimation of introduction of a new technological product. Application of the proposed methodology will allow systematically investigate the processes of technological development of the enterprise and will become the basis for introduction of integrated management of transfer processes. Enterprises need to look for efficient technologies; without finding relevant options within the country, they often have to turn to foreign developers. The problem of this phenomenon lies with unsatisfactory system of technology exchange between participants of the innovation process, which leads to a widening gap between science and production and consequently leads to reducing competitiveness of national products, worsens economic situation in the country.
