“Technology” means hard technology as well as all of its associated aspects, such as specialized equipment and technical know-how, including manuals, designs, operating instructions, training and technical advice and assistance, necessary to assemble, maintain and operate a viable system and the legal right to use these items for that purpose on a non-exclusive basis. It also refers to infrastructure and enhancing technical capacity to make such transfer sustainable.
