Abstract

Nowadays Iran’s position on the international corridors, the loss of Iran's roads accidents and the emergence of environmental and energy issues, have made the development of transportation in Iran a prerequisite. The purpose of this research is to identify the effective factors on the he high speed train technology transfer and provide t its framework. Data collection has been done with library and field studies. After these stages, from 73 extracted indicators, 54 main indicators were selected by the experts of the rail transportation technology field. According to these indices, the research questionnaire was designed and distributed. Finally, after completion of the questionnaires by 37 experts in the technology transfer field, the collected data were analysed using structural equations and PLS Smart software and the research model was fitted. The 49 indicators were accepted in 3 factors and 8 dimensions for the designed model. Also the results indicate that in the selecting and acquiring technology factor,the  technology selection ranked first, the technology acquisition ranked second and  technology recognition ranked third and in the Deployment factor, the technology adaptation and localization,the technology absorption and analysis and technology exploitation  dimensions  were ranked first to third respectively and in the maintaining factor, the technology development and improvement    and technology diffusion dimensions ranked first and second respectively.
