Purpose: The purpose of the paper is to present an innovative concept of e-transfer of tech¬nology e-foresight results concerning materials surface technology, allowing for the practical industrial implementation of the results of materials science-heuristic research using a state-of-art IT technology.Design/methodology/approach: Technology e-transfer is an innovating concept popularised in industry, especially in SMEs, developed in the course of the previously pursued e-foresight research of modern knowledge concerning the priority innovative materials surface technologies and the forecast directions of their development.Findings: Technology e-transfer embracing e-information, e-advisory and e-learning, is an efficient method of disseminating the results of technology e-foresight of materials surface engineering within industry.Research limitations/implications: If technology e-transfer is used in the Open Access mode, anyone, for free and at the same terms, has access to a database on the priority innovative tech¬nologies of materials surface engineering and the anticipated directions of their development, which has a positive effect on the development of a knowledge- and innovation-based economy.Practical implications: The idea of disseminating the results of e-foresight of materials surface engineering by way of technology e-transfer is especially attractive for small- and medium-sized companies lacking the funds required to perform their own research in this scope.Originality/value: The concept of technology e-transfer represents the Authors’ original contribution into the development of Computer Aided Knowledge Management.
