Business and Knowledge: a new world
4th edition (2010): Business and Knowledge: a new world
In reviewing the pillars of competitiveness, the management, dissemination and use of knowledge were profiled as a sustainable commitment to the future of countries. Catalonia starts from a good base, both for the richness of its scientific production as well as for its assets in talent management.
The fourth FemCAT Forum gave voice to the agents in our society who protect, generate and transfer knowledge. An academic, a researcher, and a businessman gave their views on the elements that can help Catalonia and its businesses on the journey towards a more competitive future.
Participating speakers at the Forum: Rafael Reif, Provost at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Josep Maria Gatell, Co-director of Hivacat, and Antoni Esteve, President of Esteve.
- Rafael Reif: “The nations that thrive are investing in human capital”
- Antoni Esteve: “It is necessary to have an open circle of creativity, in which diverse specialists, perhaps located in different countries, will increasingly participate”
