Beyond the Buzzword
The term "knowledge economy" has become a buzzword that stands for everything --and nothing. This topic will be introduced by considering the control of knowledge through intellectual property.

This session will explore how intellectual property will become THE key aspect of business transformation, while uncovering the main challenges for industrial and national competiveness.
