Abstract : The Informatics Technology transfer process has specific characteristics which are additional to the general aspects of technology transfer problems. Current scientific and technical progress attributes a key role to technology, in its various fields, for the social and economic development of countries. Revolutionary technologies in the field of informatics have developed rapidly, taking a place of essential importance in the organization, control and evolution of all aspects in the life of our society. The contribution of informatics technology, primarily covers key issues in economic development, such as public administration and management, information on economic and human resource and control of production. The transfer of informatics technology is therefore subject to specific national policies and international co-operation in which technology is considered an instrument of independent economic development.
