Knowledge Transfer across Borders: Integrative Approaches
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
4pm – 6:30pm
Assembly Hall, Wilhelmsplatz 1, 37073 Göttingen
The festive opening of the international conference on “Knowledge Transfer Across Borders” is open to all.
In today’s globalized, knowledge-intensive world, the accumulation and transfer of knowledge has become a key success factor for organizations. However, knowledge transfer is complex due to the difficulties in defining, storing and circulating knowledge. This challenge increases even more when knowledge is transferred across national, cultural and linguistic borders. Despite the importance of the topic, prior research has been fragmented and sometimes inconclusive, partly due to disciplinary boundaries. The two keynote speakers address these challenges from their respective academic backgrounds, neurobiology and international business.
