This paper is an exploratory study to analyze the flow of knowledge in science and technology in order to predict technology innovation. Here, we need to look into the characteristics of how knowledge is created in science, technology and industry to start with. Based on the characteristics we find, we have to understand the relationships between science, technology and industry, and construct a model to link them to each other for future empirical studies. In this study, we take a general view of the existing study results and theoretical models on the characteristics and linkage of scientific and technological knowledge. Moreover, we examine the preliminary framework to link science to technology to industry for further study on the knowledge flow of science and technology. Finally, we present the direction for future study by using the examined models and framework.
