The Role of Newly Graduated Researchers in the Advancement of Scientific Research in the Great Jamahiriya Dr Osama a Tashani Associate professor of physiology, Faculty of Science, University of Garyounis, Libya Research fellow, centre for pain research, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK email@example.com دور الباحث حديث التخرج في تفعيل البحث العلمي في الجماهيرية العظمى
Status of Research Output from Libya The average annual production rate at The University of Al-Fateh is: 1.4 article/100 academic staff Arabic and African countries have the lowest number of patents, trademarks and high-technology exports.
Four major problems are facing scientific research in Arab countries in general and in Libya in particular: 1) Brain Drain 2) Lack of funding 3) Lack of scientific infrastructure and incompetent supportive staff, and 4) Teaching overload. المشاكل الرئيسية التي تعرقل البحث العلمي في ليبيا هجرة الخبرات ندرة الدعم المالي انعدام البنية التحتية العبء الدراسي
Arab countries lose half of their newly-qualified medical doctors, 23 per cent of engineers and 15 per cent of scientists each year Brain Drain
التواصل بين البحاثة في الداخل والخارج التعاون بين المؤسسات البحثية الليبية والأجنبية Networking and cooperation
قلة الدعم المالي للبحث العلمي في ليبيا Lack of funding
How to get money for research in Libya Asking for more funds whilst getting the most out of the available resources Researchers have to promote the need for research and have to justify expenditure on research projects Increasing one’s visibility within the scientific and educational community Mastering public relations skills لله.. يامحسنين.. لله بحث علمي ممتاز يحتاج الدعم...
How to get money for research in Libya Supervise postgraduate students Explore governmental organizations Arabic and regional research councils International bodies and learning societies Get second hand equipment Invest your time wisely
Linking research to education Infrastructures for research 1)lack of momentum at the managerial level of universities to make scientific research a priority and 2)lack of reasonable development plan of the technical supportive staff. 1. البحث العلمي ليس من أولويات إدارة الجامعات 2. إنعدام خبرة الطاقم الفني
Teaching load فيه فكرة بحث ماصارت بكل توة كيف طالع من محاضرة رسم هندسي للمجموعة السابعة من متاعين العشية ياودي فكني
Engage undergraduate students in research projects to generate and work with data Innovation of teaching methods Case Study Approach Problem-based Learning Learning by doing ……. Linking research with teaching
Research in Libya: few myths and misconceptions The priority of Research should be directed to solving problems of society rather than publishing. There is a bias toward publishing research output from Libya Research needs huge amounts of money and resources Research written in Arabic is not publishable Engaging in Research does not promote my career All research ideas have been tried before somewhere else The Libyan University culture is not based on research and I can not change this Libyan researchers are not as intelligent as should be
Conclusions Only a positive attitude and optimistic approach would yield fruitful rewards. Among all the solutions I proposed I think networking with colleagues inside and outside Libya is the key to share ideas and debate issues related to science and pragmatically resolve problems. This symposium is a leap forward to network young talents and connect Libyan scholars.
