Abstract

Transnational projects aiming at knowledge transfer and diffusion are essential for both labor force development and social innovation. Formal training programs and certified courses organized under the umbrella of transnational projects aimed at increasing occupational rate were considered to be an effective way for channeling international knowledge to reach specific labor demand. However, the international transfer of technology implies specific actions regarding technology adoption and technology transfer problems, which needs proactively tackled as possible sources of risks for human resources development projects. It is the scope of this paper that, after a synthesis of relevant literature regarding the international technology transfer to enlighten bridges needed to enable efficient transnational knowledge transfer and knowledge creation. Based on empirical analysis upon different factors of knowledge transfer efficiency, interculturality, digital skills and occupational trainings, some conclusions are formulated, in line with the knowledge transfer actual theory. Finally, the article presents a case study based on a Romanian transnational project financed by European Social Fund that has offered an efficient method for training and skill building, witch fully supports the conclusions formulated by the author. Future research directions and perspective are also presented in the end.
