  • Context : "Entrepreneurship" for all (everyone is concerned by entrepreneurship): Due to the LMD reform, all students have to take a course in entrepreneurship We wanted to include as well: Graduates because of unemployment rates Researchers since almost all research results are not valorized and researchers' competencies are not really used for regional and business development… This lead us to the three main conclusions: Demand for qualified teachers/trainers Insufficient number of teachers/trainers Different type of teaching/training than other disciplines and needs a specific pedagogy Otherwise we have to work on training the trainers to be able to contribute to the change of the culture and develop entrepreneurship. So we launched a Project " Entrepreneuriale Culture and Firm Creation ": Define this training (content, pedagogy, tools, logistics, …) Train future trainers (a network of trainers/professionals) Train graduates/researchers having a project idea … EPUC: Entrepreneurship and Placement University Center CUIES: Centre Universitaire d'Insertion et d'Essaimage de Sfax Created since the end of 2005 Mission: Promote employment of the university graduates (surveys about the needs of the industry…) Promote entrepreneurship culture (students should create their own jobs…) Promote research efforts and results (research should be valuable to the socio-economic environment… Surveys (research results and skills, industry needs…) CRIC  RCIC (Regional Committee for Innovation and Competitiveness)
