In 2004, the President of the Republic announced the creation of the Ministry of Scientific Research, Technology and Competency Development. This decision was a turning point in the promotion of R&D in Tunisia. It allowed this sector to build its own institutional capabilities (legislative and structural).
In January 2007, this Ministry joined the Ministry of Higher Education, a decision that reiterates t h e key role of universities in the national scientific research and innovation system and to engage all the components of this system in a global vision of quality, pertinence and synergy with the economy and the whole society.
