Abstract


The incubation concept is an effective way to link technology, capital and know-how to leverage entrepreneurial talent and accelerate the development of new startups. Incubators are typically established through public-private collaborations between universities, industry and all levels of government because of the importance of innovative small businesses in creating jobs and economic growth. In Morocco, incubation was introduced in universities, stimulated by the Law 01/00 on the organization of higher education. This law has revolutionized the ways in which higher education and research operate. It has opened up new perspectives for universities by enabling them to participate in the creation of wealth and contribute directly to regional and national dynamism. In this work, we will discuss the value chain of academic incubation in Morocco by focusing on the insufficiencies and inadequacies of the process of creating innovative business in Morocco.

Author Keywords: Academic incubator, enterprise, innovation, research valorization, technology transfer.


Abstract: (french)


Le concept d'incubation constitue un moyen efficace de relier la technologie, le capital et le savoir-faire afin de tirer parti du talent entrepreneurial et d'accélérer le développement de nouvelles startups. Les incubateurs sont généralement établis dans le cadre de collaborations public-privé entre les universités, l'industrie et tous les niveaux du gouvernement à cause de l'importance des petites entreprises innovantes dans la création d'emplois et la croissance économique. Au Maroc, l’incubation a été introduite dans les universités, sous l’impulsion de la loi 01/00 portant sur l’organisation de l’enseignement supérieur. Cette loi a révolutionné les modes de fonctionnement de l’enseignement supérieur et de la recherche. Elle a ouvert de nouvelles perspectives aux universités en leur permettant de participer à la création de richesses et de contribuer directement au dynamisme régional et national. Dans ce travail, nous allons discuter la chaîne de valeur de l’incubation académique au Maroc en mettant l’accent sur les insuffisances et les inadéquations du processus de la création d’entreprise innovante au Maroc.

Author Keywords: Incubateur académique, entreprise, innovation, valorisation de la recherche, transfert de technologie.
