  • Young researchers' motivation for knowledge transfer [Elektronski vir]
    Košmrlj Muha, Katarina ; Arzenšek, Ana
    Since 1985, Slovenia has run a special programme for the promotion of science and doctoral studies among young people, called "Young researchers training programme". Since its beginning, the ... programme has been substantially funded, and over 6000 young people have participated in the training. However, no significant research on the programme's effectiveness has been done, so far. This paper presents results of research aimed at identifying young researchers' motivation for entering the training programme, their assessment of the training, and links to knowledge transfer into practice as the principle idea behind the programme. Analysis shows that intrinsic motivation, along with fulfilment of expectations, significantly influences several aspects of knowledge transfer. Adequacy of training quality for knowledge transfer and the usefulness of knowledge could be enhanced by revising young researcher candidates', as well as mentor candidates', motivation for training and readiness for cooperation.
