Following the two evaluations of the direct and indirect economic effects generated by the EURAM, BRITE and BRITE-EURAM I programmes within their European participants, this report analyses the concept of technological transfers (TTs). Some of the diverse effects measured in 310 participants from 1992 to 1994 can be qualified as TTs. Direct effects (directly generated by the research and development (research and development) project) can be partly considered as TTs since they are the result of a cooperative project defined in technological terms. Indirect effects, and more specifically indirect technological effects (not explicitly written into the research and development agreement), are the true TTs corresponding to the conventional definition used by the economists. All the results which have been obtained to evaluate the direct and indirect effects were collected through face-to-face interviews with the 310 participants making up the sample. These results were quantitative and based on measures of sales or of new research contracts.
