The Agence Nationale de Promotion de la Recherche Scientifique (ANPR) in Tunisia benefited from the project PASRI (Projet d’Appui au Système de Recherche et de l’Innovation) to conduct a study on the state of research in Tunisia. Science-Metrix was mandated to carry out this study. PASRI was founded by the Ministère tunisien de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche Scientifique in collaboration with the Ministère tunisien de l’Industrie. Funded by the European Union, this project aimed to improve the contribution of research and innovation for growth and employment development in Tunisia by strengthening the link between research and business.
This report (in French only) presents an analysis of Tunisian research from 2002 to 2013. The study analyzed total Tunisian scientific output, as well as subfields of science, in comparison with other selected countries and regions. Bibliometric data on Tunisian organizations were also provided, as well as data on international cooperation. This study identified the strengths and weaknesses of Tunisian research and highlighted research opportunities that could become priority research fields in the coming years. Some elements of discussion about international cooperation are also presented in this report.
