Abstract: This publication aims to identify the role of the Moroccan university in the development of innovation in the clusters. To do this we will firstly present what it is a cluster, and the actors involved in its development. The idea is to take stock the role of the university as an actor involved in the creation of the necessary knowledge for innovation, also involved in the development of innovation skills, and in the exchange of knowledge inside a cluster. However, this analysis will be carried out simultaneously with the literature review in which we will clarify how the Moroccan university can play the role of an innovation actor and consequently an actor in the development of industrial clusters in Morocco, and this by two studies of cases, the first one is the aeronautical pole Aeropole Nouaceur and the second one is the digital Morocco cluster.
