About the conference

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) on 23 – 25 September 2014. The 2014 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, as well as 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 framework. A great emphasis will be placed upon the role of universities in the development of local innovative capabilities. The conference will also explore the interactions between learning processes, institutions and spatial patterns of innovative activities. An additional theme will consider how geographical, organisational and institutional proximities relate to the operation of localised innovation systems.

The registration fees, hotel and meals will be covered by the conference organisers for all authors whose paper is accepted.
