The Scientific research never has been so present in political speech, public debate and subconscious as in recent months. One of the “positive effects” of the COVID19 pandemic is this “sudden” awareness of the importance of research and its vital role in the socio-economic development of nations. If the COVID 19 crisis should mark a turning point for governments, especially the Moroccan government, to increase the scientific research funds, this must also be an opportunity for researchers to resume their way of conceiving and executing research , and delivering their research results. Research must be useful, exploitable and must have an impact on the Community in general and it have to be a source of wealth creation. To do this, technology transfer presents the appropriate way for the valorization of the research results and the researcher himself, the preparation of the young researchers for active life and their involvement in the development of their country and proving through demonstration, return on investment. In this conference, we will present the technology transfer concept and explain its foundations and processes, show throughout concrete examples the role of technology transfer in the valorization of research results, present its contribution to the researcher carer, and the essential role he plays in innovation and wealth creation.
