Ivoiry Cost - Abidjan - March 9th to 13th 2015 - Valorization in an Academic Context

mars 5th, 2015 Posted in Africa, France, North Africa


Organized by the IRD (Research Institute for the Development - France) under the framework of the Ivoiry Cost and French Government, this Workshop (Amruge program )  will present most of the aspects linked to the valorization of the academic research results and competencies.  Africa needs to increase its speed of development and one way to reach this objective is to speed up the job creation. This can be done in various ways, but one of the most important is to facilitate the enterprise creations and also to help the SME’s sector through the transfer of competencies, know-how and resesults of the academic research. This move, if it is successful will participate to the mental change of academic people, opening the way to innovation and SRR (Social Rsearch Responsibility).

Here are some presentations and complementary research papers dealing with two aspects od the valorization presented by Professor Henri Dou in this workshop: “Enjeux Socio-économiques de la valorization” (Social and Economic Impact of the Valorization) and “Information Scientifique et Technique (IST) et Veille Technologique, quelles sources pour quels intérêts” (Scientific and Technical Information, Competitive Technical Intelligence, what sources for what interests).
