Abstract: This dissertation studies innovation and technology transfer in the context of industrial organization. The first chapter analyses the equilibrium and optimal size of research joint venture (RJV) when firms choose investment on R&D independently. Any non-industry-wide RJV with technology transfer welfare-dominates an industry-wide RJV, suggesting government should promote licensing as an alternative to formation of an industry-wide cooperation. The second chapter studies reverse licensing. An upstream monopolist requires downstream producers to surrender their patents. While reverse licensing yields better welfare in the short-run but may harm the incentive to innovate. A fair compensation for the surrendered patents enforced by government will encourage innovation. The third chapter studies the optimal environmental tax under government failure and the possibility of transferring clean technology. A strong emphasis on environment by government may lead to no adoption of clean technology, and the firm may choose the bribe the government official to pretend possessing the clean technology.
