Title: From R 2 gravity to no-scale supergravity

We show that R 2 gravity coupled conformally to scalar fields is equivalent to the real bosonic sector of SU (N,1) / SU (N) × U (1) no-scale supergravity, where the conformal factor can be identified with the Kähler potential, and we review the construction of Starobinsky-like models of inflation within this framework.
