The Valorization of Technologies, Inventions, and Innovations in Burkina Faso

The National Agency for the Valorization of Research Results and Innovation (ANVAR) has established a national strategy for the valorization of technologies, inventions, and innovation (SNVTII) whose latest revision runs until 2024. The SNVTII, in its implementation, will rely on planning tools such as the three-year rolling action plan (PAG).



The National Agency for the valorization of research results and innovation (ANVAR) has brought together this Monday, June 7th, 2021, men and women of the media to exchange with them around the national strategy of valorization of technologies, inventions, and innovations (SNVTII). The meeting was used to announce the 13th edition of the National Forum of Scientific Research and Technological Innovation (FRISIT) to be held from October 26th to 30th.

Dr. Louis Sawadogo is a researcher at the Institute of Environment and Agricultural Research of Burkina Faso (INERA), and Director General of ANVAR. He explained that the SNVTII allows his Agency to promote “intensively” the use of research results, technological innovations to boost the socio-economic development of the country. “Since 2012, the date of the first implementation of the SNVTII, the strategy is very little known so that the results of the research are little valued and what is valued are very little known, “he said.

The SNVTII, in its implementation, will rely on planning tools such as the three-year rolling action plan (PAG), the annual program of activities of development structures. In addition to this, the SNVTII, mentioned Mr. Sawadogo, will be based on the program budget of the work plan and the annual performance project. By 2024, the implementation strategy of the communication and marketing plan must be 100%. Because the first officials believe that these areas are important links.

13th edition of FRSIT from October 26th to 30th, 2021

To highlight this strategy, it will be held from October 26th to October 30th, 2021, the 13th edition of the National Forum of Scientific Research and Technological Innovation (FRSIT). This meeting, according to the director of FRSIT, Carolle Awa Bambara, is the showcase of research results. “Scientific research and innovation for entrepreneurship and employability of youth and women in the West African sub-region” is the theme of this edition of the National Forum on Scientific Research and Technological Innovation.

In any case, the Association of Journalists and Science Communicators of Burkina Faso (AJCS-BF) is willing to accompany them for the success of their mission. Present at this meeting, the coordinator of the said association, Karim Namoano, said he was willing with all its members to offer their expertise to researchers and scientists through communication via the media.

Because, he recognized, despite efforts, innovations and innovators in Burkina Faso are little known and little valued. “In the areas where these results are valued, the efforts of research are still little popularized,” he said. That is why the meeting on the national strategy for the valorization of technologies, inventions and innovations is very important and is a step because, he said, others will follow.
