Abstract:
This work aims to develop a strategic framework and actions to establish one of the Southern Mediterranean/Northern Africa medical research institutes as a competence center in liver research for better management of liver disease. Chronological research steps were taken that started by comprehensive analytical study and mapping of research landscape involving the analysis of national liver disease state of the art, innovation needs were prioritized and the potential of Theodor Bilharz Research Institute (TBRI) was assessed through an integrated SWOT (Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and threats) analysis. Based on the aggregated and digested above mentioned findings and studies a strategic framework involving a road map to adopt for the future five years was developed, where tools were set to address the establishment of a research valorization system, systemizing industry connections and improve research capacity towards a good economic impact of science and technology. This framework modeling TBRI as a competence center more or less reflects the situation in Northern Africa institutes.
