9th European Conference on Intellectual Capital “Intellectual Capital: Its Application in Practice” (ECIC) 2017 Lisbon

  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of the Insti­tuto Uni­ver­sitário de Lis­boa (ISCTE-​IUL), a Por­tuguese Pub­lic Uni­ver­sity estab­lished in 1972, we wel­come you to the 9th Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on Intel­lec­tual Cap­i­tal (ECIC 2017). The search for new met­rics and approaches to man­age intel­lec­tual resources in organ­i­sa­tions has moti­vated researchers to inves­ti­gate how to improve the way organ­i­sa­tions man­age their intel­lec­tual capital.

    The team at ISCTE-​IUL, together with our part­ners at INDEG-​IUL will ensure that the con­fer­ence pro­vides a stim­u­lat­ing atmos­phere, in the beau­ti­ful and his­toric city of Lis­bon, for aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers to share strate­gic thoughts, iden­tify chal­lenges, rein­force net­works, and dis­cover new trends in the field of intel­lec­tual cap­i­tal research. In 2017 we would espe­cially like to focus on the appli­ca­tion of intel­lec­tual cap­i­tal in Practice.

    About the Conference

    The Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on Intel­lec­tual Cap­i­tal was estab­lished 9 years ago and has been held in coun­tries across Europe, includ­ing Spain, Slo­va­kia, Fin­land, The Nether­lands, Cyprus and Italy. The con­fer­ence is gen­er­ally attended by par­tic­i­pants from more than 25 coun­tries and attracts an inter­est­ing mix of aca­d­e­mic schol­ars, prac­ti­tion­ers and indi­vid­u­als who are engaged in var­i­ous aspects of Intel­lec­tual Cap­i­tal research.

    A num­ber of jour­nals includ­ing the Elec­tronic Jour­nal of Knowl­edge Man­age­ment con­sider papers pre­sented at this con­fer­ence for fur­ther devel­op­ment and pub­li­ca­tion. ECIC 2017 is being held at the Uni­ver­sity Insti­tute of Lis­bon (ISCTE-​IUL) on 67 April, 2017 in Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal and the Con­fer­ence Co-​Chairs are Pro­fes­sor Ilí­dio Tomás Lopes and Pro­fes­sor Rogério Serrasqueiro.

    Con­fer­ence Topics

    Intel­lec­tual cap­i­tal (IC) is gen­er­ally defined as the intan­gi­ble value of a busi­ness, and it incor­po­rates its peo­ple (Human Cap­i­tal), the value inher­ent in its rela­tion­ships (Rela­tional cap­i­tal), and the knowl­edge and sys­tems that form the foun­da­tion of the busi­ness (Struc­tural cap­i­tal). There has been, and con­tin­ues to be, much dis­cus­sion over how intel­lec­tual cap­i­tal dif­fers from intan­gi­bles, intan­gi­ble assets or intel­lec­tual property.

    In 1999, the Organ­i­sa­tion for Eco­nomic Co-​operation and Devel­op­ment con­vened an inter­na­tional sym­po­sium in Ams­ter­dam to delib­er­ate on the expe­ri­ence, issues and prospects on mea­sur­ing and report­ing intel­lec­tual cap­i­tal. At the same time a num­ber of Euro­pean Insti­tu­tions were col­lab­o­rat­ing to pro­duce a com­mon frame­work for the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, mea­sure­ment and con­trol of intan­gi­bles as well as to sug­gest cri­te­ria for the dis­clo­sure of infor­ma­tion on the intan­gi­ble deter­mi­nants of the firm’s value. This activ­ity, known bet­ter as the Mer­i­tum Project, pro­duced a report in April 2001.

    More than a decade on, at ECIC 2017 we want to look beyond these guide­lines to show­case the state of the art research in the field of Intel­lec­tual Cap­i­tal. This year we are par­tic­u­larly inter­ested in the appli­ca­tion of intel­lec­tual cap­i­tal in prac­tice and the links between the­ory and practice.
