The relationship between researches and industries in many Arab countries is characterized by a great deal of ambiguity and negativity. These characteristics create a big gap, especially in the transfer of Know-how. This research aims to clarify this relationship based on historical view and qualitative/descriptive analysis. We create a URI paradigm (University-Researchers-Industries), where we explained the interactions between the three players. We found three destructive spots and one constructive which called "Fertility Spot" which considered only hope to get out of the gap. We also tried to build a matrix of know-how between researchers and industries, which illustrate the only two positive cells out of sixteen, where we found the optimal interaction during the relationship. Finally, we illustrate in the agenda for future as a conclusion, set of limitations to be considered in future researches, to finalize the characteristics of a strategic road which can reduce the gap mentioned and make the relationship between research and industry more coherent.
