  3. 3. CONTEXTE  European Research Area (Strengthening international research cooperation between Algeria and Europe in areas relevant to the FP7) .  Development “ Food, Agriculture and Water” center of excellence (facilitating its participation in European and regional collaborative research initiatives) to respond to Algerian’s socio- economic needs.
  4. 4. FAWIRA: OVERALL OBJECTIVE Renforcer les capacités de coopération internationale de l’INRAA dédiée à la recherche dans les domaines de l’alimentation, l’agriculture et l’eau (AAE), en vue de répondre aux besoins socioéconomiques de l’Algérie
  5. 5. FAWIRA :SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES  Analysis of Needs and Opportunities in research and innovations fields.  Build Capacity and Training activities for researchers and INRAA’s Staff.  Create Network (Research, SME’s, Stakholders).  Disseminate Results and Knowledge.  Ensure Project Sustainability.
  6. 6. FAWIRA : MAIN RESULTS  Faire de l’INRAA un centre d’excellence dans le contexte et les standards de l’ERA (Agriculture, eau et Alimentation).  Faciliter et booster la participation de l’INRAA dans les programmes FP7 and other European related research programs ainsi que les programmes internationaux et autres initiatives régionales (Arimnet…etc).  Intégration de l’INRAA dans les réseaux internationaux de RTD.  Développer les activités d’innovation dans le cadre du modèle de la Triple hélice (« Clusters », « brokerage events », « Open days », « webactio n, Forum …etc.,) impliquant la recherche- formation, les institutions publiques et les acteurs économiques (PMEs).  Plan de développement stratégique de l’INRAA pour faire face aux besoins futures et défis .
  7. 7.  The triple helix is about creative links between the state, the economic sector (Both private and public) and universities/ Research centers.  Triple helix model has been recognized widely (Etzkowitz and Mello 1994, Turpin et al.1993, Shinn1997, Leydersdoff 1997, Leydesdorff & Etzkowitz,1998)  The triple helix model posits three spheres, overlapping and interacting freely, with each “taking the role of the other,” producing hybrid organizations (Science park, “techno poles” spin-offs, incubators from these interactions.  Triple Helix III, an interactive model, consists of overlapping, yet relatively independent, institutional spheres. An active civil society is the key element that characterizes a fully functioning triple helix(Model III). FAWIRA : THEORICAL FRAMWORK: 1  Innovation is at the heart of generating economic growth ( Agriculture and agrifood sectors).  Enhance research activities and innovation would help, both research centers/ universities and SMEs, to be more competitive in markets.  Need for regular communication for better efficiency. Triple Helix III Model
