The Commission policies and programs

Formulating research priorities and methods of operation to maximize the benefits of research investment

The objectives of the permanent commission are to support public research policies, develop intersectoral coordination programs, scientific cooperation and partnerships.

Algeria's research policy must be reviewed with the aim of meeting the country's development needs. The operating system must be improved to be more efficient with regard to the funds that have been allocated and the immense potential, both human, local and established abroad, and natural.

Furthermore, it is clear that, in general, the socio-economic sector does not express research needs capable of responding to its many problems. More specifically, demand from the industrial fabric must be reinforced in order to make it grow, the current situation requiring special measures for the development of research in this sector.

Commission Innovation and strategic watch

developing policies that accelerate the commercialization of research products

The urgent tasks of the commission are to identify ways to boost innovation in Algeria, starting with the development of relations between research teams in the different entities and socio-economic sectors. The mastery of innovation will allow Algerian companies to be competitive in exports and to improve their productivity levels.

The diagnosis and the state of play were discussed highlighting that the industry is very far from the reality of innovation because of the lack of certification and accreditation, so we must have a culture of innovation and start with Algerian specificities and then go to international level. We can also note that there is a lack of visibility of the problems of the socio-economic sectors that can encourage researchers to approach these actors to develop collaboration. There is also a lack of trust from funding institutions which affects young Algerians innovators and demotivates them in creating their own business or start-up.

Commission valorization

transforming research products into innovative and sustainable solutions for the well-being of citizens

The concept of valorization expresses the process which transforms the results of research into products used by economic actors in order to produce social value. This presupposes a dynamic partnership between the university or research center and the socio-economic sector. To this end, particular attention must be paid to the development of links and cooperation between the two sectors and to the establishment of mechanisms aimed at encouraging the association of economic partners in the choice and implementation of research activities. In order to carry out an effective monitoring and evaluation of the national mechanisms for the valorization of research results, it is mentioned the urgency of first identifying the main stakeholder partners and the various ministerial departments to begin the evaluation work of the national valuation systems based on the reliable and updated data provided by these institutions.

Commission evaluation

providing insights to policy makers of the value of resources expended to achieve program goals.

Evaluation is the systematic and objective assessment of an on-going or completed project, program, or policy, and its design, implementation and results. The aim is to determine the relevance and fulfilment of objectives, development efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and sustainability. 

The commission will have to propose a roadmap staggered over the year 2022 in relation to its missions, which must be centred on the development of tools and methods for the evaluation of policies and research programs and the monitoring of their implementation. Another important aspect is the evaluation of the efficiency of national mechanisms for promoting research results for the benefit of the national economy in the context of sustainable development. On the awareness and monitoring aspects the culture of scientific evaluation must be included in the entire community of scientists and decision-makers. 
The questions to ask for assessment are related to the why of the evaluation? for who? How ? evaluation of what and by whom?
