Innovation as one of the key drivers of economic development required the significant involvement of transfer of ideas to successful application. Furthermore, micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) is identified as the basic element in the innovation system. So, involvement of MSME in developing innovation capability in a nation should be considered. In other side, University and publicly funded research Institute provide technology solutions for MSME to strengthen their competitiveness. The scientific community, as technology provider, must require another agent to get a close link with MSME as their user. When intermediaries undertake their function, the policy makers should acknowledge their role and authority to support this mechanism. This paper shows the role of social contract in aligning science and universities to societal needs. It includes social contracts between science and university, on the one hand, and the Government, on the other. State is belief as only exists to serve the will of the people which is the source of all political power and also autonomy for budget.
