Under a rapidly changing environment, firms have attempted to co-operate with organizations that possess high technologies to improve their technical capabilities. Most countries have worked towards developing a suitable strategy for international technology co-operation based on the diagnostic results of their technological capabilities and indices. These diagnostic results indicate the level and degree of international technology co-operation that have been developed in academia. However, identifying the overall conditions of international technology co-operation based on existing indices is a difficult task. Hence, to address this problem, indices that can measure diverse perspectives of core technology co-operation activities need to be developed. This research aims to develop a framework for identifying the current state of international technology co-operation in diverse perspectives at the national level. We develop indices based on relevant literature and formulate an analytical framework for international technology co-operation in diverse perspectives using DEA analysis. The results are expected to contribute to effective technology planning at the national level by diagnosing capabilities for international technology co-operation from diverse perspectives.
