We give the derivation of the Starobinsky model for the Inflaton Potential,as it comes from a standard N=1 Supergravity which is dual to a R+R2 theory. The recent interest in this model and its class of Attractors comes from the successfull prediction of the slow roll inflationary parameters following the results of the Planck satellite experiment
