Exploring the Importance of University-Industry Interactions in the Context of the Territory Innovation System

Following in the footsteps of the two Bristol Conferences in 2008 and 2011 and the Oran
conference in 2013, the fourth international COSINUS conference will take place in Bordj Bou Arreridj (Algeria) . The country of Bordj-Bou-Arreridj is steadily emerging into an industrial district and learning region, specialised in electronics. The University of Bordj-Bou- Arreridj is considered to play a key role in the production of localised knowledge spill overs. Following successful cases in the United States (Silicon Valley), many regions in industrialised and industrialising countries have been attempting to set up new clusters through industrial districts, techno poles, science parks, firm incubators and learning networks. A number of different theoretical frameworks have been developed to analyse the geographical dimension of innovation and its implications for the clustering of economic activities. These frameworks include the theory of regional innovation systems, industrial districts, innovative milieu, new industrial spaces, local production systems and the localised learning capabilities
The fourth international COSINUS conference will continue to provide a forum for
academics, university/college management personnel, industry practitioners, planners, policy makers and other key stakeholders to discuss issues relating to best practice in knowledge exchange and knowledge sharing, and strategies for deepening and broadening the role of the university within the innovation systems. This conference will focus on the role of universities within the territorial innovation system. A great emphasis will be placed upon the role of universities in the development of local innovative capabilities.
