Science, Technology & Innovation [Algerian Portal]

What science and technology are, and how  can we improve our capacities to face innovation challenges. We’ll focus mainly on Infrastuctures, Human Capacities and Scientific Cooperation which plays a determining role in economic development.

Our services in knowledge transfer

We provide a set of services to our scientific partners. To avoid loss of time and money, ask for assistance, we can help by knowledge transfer and by hosting researchers in our research centres et technological platforms.

The three fundamentals pillars in STI Strategy


Scientific infrastructures are  dedicated to training and research. They  are under the supervision of the directorate general for  research and technological development. Explore the equipment and apply for use.

Human Capacities

Targeting knowledge-based economy, needs to  increase researchers and people knowledge not only to bring to the achievement of new research results but also to  the creation of startups and new jobs.

Scientific Cooperation

 The globalization of research has allowed the emergence of national elites at the forefront of knowledge and technological progress. This action has become possible thanks to the rise of  cross border scientific…

Why Scientific Research must be aligned to national
development goals first?

Knowing OUr environment

What good (useful) research is? when policy makers targets sustainable development and the creation of wealth it is essential to know their  own  geographical, biological and human environment. It includes their strengths and weakenesses, experts said.

Learn from value investing

Science realised by thousand of research projects can reveal how to make the best use of the environment where citizens live, of which they live, without destroying the various ecosystems and to adapt, even to create some modern technologies. 

Industry / university Teaming

Bridging the gap between academic research and industry needs is essential. Unsuccessful attempts  or lack of confidence from industry are common in developping countries. Academics have a responsability to go further and ensure that they are available.

Plaidoyer pour une politique de Science, de Technologie et d’Innovation à l’aube de la Nouvelle Ere

Les attentes des algériens sont nombreuses. La science, la technologie et l’innovation constituent de puissants leviers pour assurer la transition vers un nouveau modèle sociétal respectueux des valeurs, durable  et équitable. L’accès à la connaissance,  à l’éducation,  à la santé,  au logement, au transport ainsi que l’intégration des catégories marginalisées de la société constituent de puissants indicateurs mondiaux. Les mauvais classements internationaux attribués à l’Algérie dans les divers  domaines des sciences et technologies restent difficilement acceptables, car en-deçà de nos capacités et des nombreux investissements consentis par l’Etat.  Les ressources humaines en sont le principal handicap.

Si l’on se réfère au niveau des infrastructures de formation et de recherche dont jouit le pays, le déploiement des communications et des TIC,  les avancées dans la maîtrise des technologies du laser, du nucléaire, du spatial, de la microélectronique et des biotechnologies, tout  laisse supposer que l’on peut prétendre à une qualité de vie meilleure. De nombreuses nations  ont réussi  par une démarche inclusive, un décollage économique avec beaucoup moins de moyen. On peut se poser la question, pourquoi pas l’Algérie ?
