Editorial by RNI, July 2016

“Innovation potential and competitiveness of the Maghreb economies”, by Messaoud Zouikri, Sonia Ben Slimane

Political and economic systems in Maghreb countries are facing a tough situation due to two recent macro-economic events namely the 2008 global financial crisis coupled with the unprecedented Arab springs. These events shed light on the already existing failing economic structures and settle real threats on the economic progress of these countries. The right question to ask now concerns their capacity to deal with the actual challenges: mass unemployment; particularly that of graduates and ability to ensure a strong sustainable economic growth to meet global competition.

The most important challenge to rise is mainly linked to the capacity of these countries to insert and value innovation in their development models relying on their scientific, technical and innovation capabilities. Achieving this goal needs the implementation of public policies which favor firms’ engagement in innovation, support for entrepreneurial activities in key technological sectors, and fundamental investments leading to real technological and economic catch-up.

In the last decade, in order to build a culture of innovation, Maghreb countries took some important actions like the creation of technopoles, university incubators and competitive poles. However, these efforts are to some extent by a number of past inherent difficulties. In fact, failure in coordination systems between actors of science and research and those of industry, institutional weakness, and the high rate of obsolescence of production tools and knowledge are the principle obstacles to overcome. Tackling these problems permits to find the missing link in the process of technological transfer which contributes in the construction of a coherent national system of innovation.

The issue of Market and Organizations offers, through several contributions, a diverse and precise image of the issues facing Maghreb countries in their change towards a new development model based on innovation. Papers in this edition turn around these three main axes of reflection: public policy of investment and of innovation at the macro-economic level, constraints on innovation at the sectoral level and entrepreneurial dynamics at the micro-economic level.
