Fifth International COSINUS Conference 2018

The next COSINUS Conference will take place from 11–12 January 2018 at Oxford Brookes University.

The theme will be "University-industry interactions in a time of turbulence opportunities and challenges".

Please take a look at the event information on the Oxford Brookes website for more details.


COSINUS works in collaboration with the International Journal for Strategy and Innovation, edited by Professor Mohammed Saad. Professor Saad would like to invite everyone who submitted a conference abstract to resubmit their paper to be considered for publication in the next issue of the journal. 

During the planning stages of the COSINUS, we had a number of discussions with various contributors, former COSINUS delegates and other colleagues and, despite the fact that the conference did not go ahead, we would still like to explore some of the ideas which emerged. 

One key idea was around creating a stronger network to bring together and to support colleagues who are interested in innovation, strategy and university-industry links. Past conferences have shown that there is a keen dialogue around research in these areas and, as would-be collaborators are often geographically dispersed, having some semi-formal platform in place to encourage more participation and space for collaboration might be of interest.

To these ends, we propose to create a COSINUS group and to produce a quarterly newsletter where group members can discuss their research, publicise events that may be of interest to other members and, generally, support and encourage networking. We would also welcome any news or information you would like to see included in the first issue. We have plans to produce the first edition of a COSINUS newsletter.

If you would like to contribute to the newsletter, and/or be added to our mailing list to receive the COSINUS newsletter, please email So we can update any previous records, please include your full name, role, organisation and address.
