Abstract: Using VAR modeling techniques and Granger causality, this research examines the impact of innovation and human capital on economic growth in the context of the Tunisian economy during the period 1970/2015. The study found a correlation between human capital and economic growth on the one hand and innovation and completion rate of primary school on the other. Indeed, confirmed to the theory of endogenous growth based on innovation, knowledge promotes growth.
