Project no.: 09.3.3-LMT-K-712-13-0076

Project description:

The 14th International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics (IFKAD) conference examines topics related to the importance of knowledge assets for growth and development, seeks to broaden knowledge theories, provides conclusions and business discussions on the value of knowledge dynamics to understand the role of knowledge ecosystems in shaping a sustainable future. Today’s business environment is characterized by global and local trends that promote understanding of the role of knowledge as a strategic resource and a source of growth. Global challenges include population growth, increased diaspora, commercialization of knowledge, pace of innovation, digital revolution and technological progress, business model transformation, a growing economy, and local problems – local development, citizen integration, employability and quality of life. Both require a better understanding of how knowledge dynamics can adequately address the creation of sustainable assets, especially through the creation of knowledge ecosystems. It is these problematic issues that are explored and discussed at the IFKAD conference.
