Engaging diaspora in socioeconomic and technological development

The President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune appreciated the recommendation made by the CNRST in order to create real synergies with our community living abroad for the socio-economic and technological development of the country. The legal committee set up for this purpose produced a first version of the document which defines the tasks and missions of the taskforce as well as the office responsible for monitoring. This decree is expected to be published at the end of August. A secretariat in charge of the preparations of the conference scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023 will meet soon, to assign tasks related to the organization of this important event. Over 268 members of our overseas community contributed to the identification of partnership areas where they can make an effective contribution. The five continents are represented, with Europe in the lead, certainly because of the proximity. The areas identified are in line with national priorities. Digital is largely in the lead, especially emerging technologies. A good place goes to food safety, energy efficiency and health. The social and human sciences are omnipresent. We will come back with more details at the end of the coordination meeting scheduled in the following days.

Annual report of the CNRST to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the R&D in Algeria

The annual CNRST’s report, which has been submitted to the President of the Republic is the culmination of an intense year of work by members of the CNRST, the different commissions, and external experts. We hope that it will meet the objectives and expectations of the public authorities in order to consider the implementation of the proposed recommendations. This report, produced in two languages, pleads for a paradigm shift in research management to specifically target technological development and innovative practices to strengthen the link between research institutions and the socio-economic sector. The report takes stock of research since 1973 and uncompromisingly identifies the weak points of the national research system and its governance, while welcoming certain achievements, in particular in training, research infrastructures and human resources. It also offers reflections on the long-term challenges and the priority areas that will need to be developed in order to diversify our economy. This 70-page report is accompanied by a booklet, also in two languages, which highlights 9 main recommendations. As indicated by the law governing the CNRST, this summary report will be the bases for the elaboration of the yearly plan of the foor commissions composing the CNRST. It will be also subject to numerous communications and conferences once approved by the highest authorities.
