Europe has set «smart, sustainable and inclusive growth» as a goal for 2020. This is in reaction to an economy judged to be short-term and excessively focused on finance • A knowledge economy based on innovation, human capital and the relationship between stakeholders is best suited to achieve this goal. But if such an economy is to create the wealth and employment opportunities of which it is capable it requires an appropriate system of governance involving an interaction between business, financial and public players • What are the best practices by which a company can extract a sustainable performance from its intangible assets while managing the risks involved? • What financial and non-financial information needs to be provided to the markets? • How can the public sector and a socially integrated economy value and develop their intangible assets? • What should financial market participants (investors, analysts, rating agencies, etc.) do to activate and finance investment in the knowledge economy? • What policies are needed to create a legal, business and fiscal environment that will best favour the knowledge economy?
“Nothing can stop an idea in action once its time has come” (Victor Hugo)
“There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune” (Shakespeare)
Has the hour of the knowledge economy arrived?
Why, how and what is the outlook? These are the questions which the panellists will discuss with participants.
