The role of the university in the management of industrial symbiosis zones

Daria Mironova, Igor V. Baranov, Shein V.М.

To date, insufficient attention has been paid to the development and application of the concept of industrial symbiosis in Russia. At the same time, the experience of foreign countries demonstrates the expediency of using this concept as a driver of regional economic development, including socio-economic and environmental components. The current mechanisms of interaction between enterprises, universities and the state are not effective enough, which, consequently, makes it difficult to implement the principles of circular economy in the Russian Federation. The aim of the research is to develop new ways of cooperation between organizations to initiate and implement projects based on the concept of industrial symbiosis. The authors propose the concept of "Industrial Symbiosis Zones" according to which universities will be the central link in building such cooperation. In addition, one of the proposed mechanisms for popularizing the principles of closed-loop economy is the development of a digital platform of industrial symbiosis. The study presents two projects in the field of fuel and energy complex, based on the concept of closed-loop economy: in the first case we are talking about the cooperation of the university, municipality and industrial partners; in the second - the cooperation of the university and enterprise. The results obtained can contribute to the sustainable development of Russian regions.
