La résilience des systèmes d'innovation en période de transition. La Tunisie après le 14 janvier 2011


  • Hatem M’Henni
  • Rigas Arvanitis


The article examines the capacity of the Tunisian National system of innovation to resist the political, economic, and social changes affecting the country. After reviewing the theoretical issues, we observe that even if the system continued to function practically unchanged, proof of a certain resilience, difficulties will remain in the absence of a clear policy in scientific research and technological development in the medium and long term, as well as because of an overly-centralised system. The article examines the architecture of the system and the proposals of political parties with regard to it. Finally, it examines the technopoles programme and makes some proposals for improving it.
