Advancing science, technology, and entrepreneurship!

Our Three Pillars

The activities of the Algerian American Association for Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship are focused on three areas. These areas constitute the pillars for our interventions.

Science

In the areas of science, we aim to create long-lasting and sustainable partnerships between Algerian and U.S. universities. Such partnerships will help build Algerian universities’ capacities by transferring US best practices in education, research, and management.

We also aim to enhance the training of graduate students and faculty with the delivery of specialized and targeted content. We encourage the mobility of faculty and students from both countries to create a learning and knowledge sharing environment.

Technology

In terms of technology our goal is to address the issue of innovation and the academic-public/private sector relationship to engage the university in the country’s socio-economic development. Through our activities, we hope to promote the involvement of faculty and students in research and education technological advances.

Entrepreneurship

Strengthening the university and the public/private sector linkages through the promotion of entrepreneurship education while assisting Algerian managers, entrepreneurs and institutions with strategic and business planning, financing, marketing, and business development to create a competitive business environment.

Furthermore, and as a cross cutting activity in support of these three pillars our members will develop and deliver courses, workshops, and seminars in emerging in science, technology, management, and entrepreneurship fields and will provide mentoring and advising to Algerian students, educators, and entrepreneurs.

Word From The President

Lakhdar Boukerrou, Ph.D.

Welcome to the Algerian-American Association for Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship website! The hardworking people behind this new initiative have big dreams of contributing to research eminence, education excellence, and innovative entrepreneurship in Algeria. We would like all stakeholders to experience our work in a fun and exciting way.

We are a new and dynamic association of like-minded people with an innovative approach to collaboration between scientists, entrepreneurs, and other interested parties both in Algerian and the United States.

The time is ripe for us to expand our outreach to such groups in Algeria and to create collaboration and learning opportunities while sharing knowledge from both countries. As such, we want to contribute to developing the historical ties between Algeria and the US. We live in an interconnect world where globalization and international education and collaboration are becoming the norm not the exception.

More engagement is needed from the academic, public, and private sectors to create opportunities for economic development in Algeria. We need to work together in these exciting times. As a non-profit organization, our vision is to “to advance the role of science, technology, and entrepreneurship in Algeria through academic and professional initiatives …” Our institutional promise is to engage with colleagues in Algeria and the United States to promote projects and activities aimed at advancing research, education, and entrepreneurship.

Our Board invites you to become a member and welcomes your involvement and contributions. You are also invited to attend our programs, online lectures, in-country projects, workshops. Please visit our Program page for more information. I am looking forward to welcoming you within the ranks of the association.
