From business administration point of view, technology transfer is process, which involves inhomogeneous participants from academia, government and business.

In different times this task was solved by different ways and we consider the process of technology transfer models evolution from 1945-1950s until present time trying to identify main reasons, which forced the transformation of technology transfer models. We start consideration from identifying the main reason of varieties in terminology, which is important to create the basic frame for further consideration, after that we consider main classes of technology transfer models – linear, parallel sequential non-linear and back feed nonlinear – and make some forecasting about technology transfer models evolution in future.
