TJS 2016 on Management Strategy towards the Establishment of Innovative Society

The Tunisia-Japan Symposium: Management Strategy towards the Establishment of Innovative Society will be held from 17th to 19th September 2016 in Tsukuba, jointly organized with JST-JICA SATREPS project: Valorization of Bioresources in Semi- and Arid Land Based on Scientific Evidence for the Creation of New Industry, under the session of Tsukuba Global Science Week (TGSW) 2016. This joint symposium aims to contribute to a sustainable development and promote international scientific exchanges between Japan and North Africa including Tunisia, through the strengthening of a multidisciplinary research network. The TJS 2016 will focus on management strategy towards the establishment of innovative society in MENA and Mediterranean countries, as well as on the social impacts resulting from such activities. The study on management strategy is a common issue shared by researchers in MENA-Mediterranean countries and Japan, and is necessary for achieving political stability and sustainable economic development of MENA in particular. The issue to establish innovative society is one of the universal challenges among different disciplines. It is expected to contribute to develop human resources who could create innovation, based on the implementation of international collaborative researches between North Africa and Japan.
