Conversion of research results to transferable and commercialisable technologies is desirable by all stakeholders. This translational process, however, is fraught with several challenges. Authors have conducted a thorough survey to identify the relevant literature on the models addressing the process leading to technology commercialisation. It was observed that existing models don't address the idiosyncrasies associated with the process leading to commercialisation of materials technologies, application and market development strategy for a research lab developing technologies for eventual transfer to industry, as well as ecosystem of a developing nation like India. A Conceptual Theoretical Model (CTM) shall be developed based on the analysis of existing literature. This model shall be used to probe the findings of a case in which Column Flotation Technology - a materials technology - was transferred to industry by CSIR-National Metallurgical Laboratory, a government funded research organization. Unique insights from the case study shall be used to identify the needed modification in the CTM. Contributions of this paper shall pave the way for proposing a model that is appropriate for a research and technology organization undertaking materials technology development for technology transfer in the Indian ecosystem. Findings and analysis of this paper shall be relevant to formulate technology transfer and partnership strategy.
