in: 10 the future of the Knowledge Society

In the so-called knowledge economy, intellectual assets have become the most important factor in determining the value of an organisation. Many activities nowadays focus on discovering the Holy Grail of knowledge management: the value of knowledge and the added value of knowledge management. Prominent work in this area includes that done by Sveiby and Edvinsson. However, so far it has been difficult to develop quantitative measures that relate knowledge to the economic value of an organisation. more....

In this paper Unisys shares some important insights regarding what technology can, and perhaps should, achieve in a knowledge society. While the current focus on the eEurope 2005 Action Plan has brought information technology policy to the forefront of everyone's minds, we hope that our perspective at Unisys will contribute some new ideas to the ongoing debate over the role of IT in modern society.more....

The knowledge-based society in Europe set by the European Council as a strategic goal for 2010 should serve as an inspiring example for all the countries in our world.
The basic aim of such society to provide sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion is inseparable from the maintenance of strategic security in a new interdependent and multicultural world.
Promotion of the knowledge-based societies which should be conceives as plural, variable and open to democratic choices makes it necessary to answer the questions what is to be done and how. The European experience should be used together with the recommendation of the UN, UNESCO, ILO and other international bodies. Millennium Development Goals (MDG) are of particular importance.
The promotion of the knowledge-based society in the world demands a responsible constitutional democratic governance both at national and global level. The task of such governance is to make the effective decisions and put them into practice through coherent and systematic approach to facilitate developing the potential of each individual and bringing human beings together to adapt themselves jointly to rapid and accelerating pace of changes in the world.more....

"Today, in the EU, we live in the knowledge society". Many, probably most, people would agree with this statement but would mean a number of different things when they say it. "Today's knowledge society needs to be and is being taken into account in the formulation of EU employment and social policies." Again, many of those involved in policy making would tend to agree, but here as well, there would be big differences as to what exactly should be done. more....

Today, twenty years after the starting point of sustainable development as such, the perception of sustainability by business professionals, scientists, journalists, politicians, teachers and general public alike, is still very diverse. Some relate it to pollution, others to environment in general, climate change, depletion of resources and energy, the extinction of species. But also as a business opportunity and a (fear based) variable to influence and control human behavior.more....

in: 10 the future of the Knowledge Society

The acceding and candidate countries, in particular those in Central and Eastern Europe, have during the last decade undergone a set of three radical transformations: the shift to a market economy, integration into the European Union the so-called Enlargement Process - and finally, a move towards the Information Society, today enshrined in the different initiatives of the eEurope Action Plans.

These three transformations aim, at various levels, at the emergence of an enlarged European knowledge society as referred to in the March 2000 declaration of the Lisbon Council. In doing so, they challenge the economy, institutional and political structures, constitutional and legal frameworks, and working conditions in the countries in question.
