What are the visions for science in Africa ? 5 - Marie-Monique Rasoazananera: priorities of Malagasy research

Research blueprints were defined in 2013. They give a frame to choose subjects to study.

"Higher education and scientific research wish to contribute to the objective of sustainable development number 8, by contributing to sustained, shared and sustainable economic growth. Full and productive employment, decent work for all. By ensuring the employability of people leaving school.

So it will be a science devoted to economic and social development. The themes defined in the national research strategy drawn up in 2013 are priority themes that are also the country's development priorities.

These priorities are defined in research blueprints: agriculture and food and nutrition security; renewable energy; biodiversity; health; environment and climate change; marine sciences and biodiversity. These blueprints were developed in a participatory way, with potential users of the research products. They are terms of reference for every research.

To integrate this education and research, it is becoming essential and urgent to create and intensify the dialogue between the world of research and business. It is also necessary to stimulate the culture of entrepreneurship in the training and research programme. Entrepreneurship and the development of tools related to entrepreneurship can be integrated into the university's internship policy, in training, as well as in extra-curricular activities."
