Global Forum Presentation

Economic, social and environmental pressures challenge organizations, cities, regions and even countries to undertake efforts aiming a sustainable development. The decision-making processes in a digital economy means, also, balancing economic, environmental and social aspects, in order to achieve excellence towards a transparent and inclusive governance. Recent research has shown the importance of identifying, valuating and monitoring intangible assets such as knowledge and intellectual capital.

The way organizations and other entities are managing and introducing IC practices is a decisive factor of their innovation capacity, competitiveness, richness and contribution to a more sustainable society, where technology supports people well-being.

The objective of this Forum is to bring together academics, experts in knowledge management and intellectual capital, public decision makers and entrepreneurs to generate discussion and knowledge sharing on how the management of these assets can foster more sustainable innovation processes and, simultaneously, greater economic and social development.
