This study aimed to assess the entrepreneurial intention of Algerian researchers in creating academic spin-offs. A survey involving 230 researchers from various national universities and research centers, revealed limited interest in entrepreneurship. Key factors influencing this inclination are desirability, feasibility, and opportunity perception, despite their low levels in the sample. To promote the establishment of such ventures, a comprehensive framework covering legislative, cultural, and financial aspects is crucial to enhance universities' capacity in forming spin-offs.
