We are currently witnessing a revolution in the way knowledge is produced, disseminated, adopted and conserved. The tectonic shifts in the shape of the global economy along with advancements in technologies and applications mean the cornerstones of a new knowledge and world order are being laid.
During this session we hear from Dr Ingo Rollwagen, about his theories on how a more distributed creation of knowledge and more sophisticated approaches to knowledge transfer are leading to the emergence of high-value knowledge networks; and how these emerging networks are better able to respond to the global challenges we are facing in energy, food and health security.
Dr Javaid Laghari and Dr Abul Azad Chowdury set out their perspective on what this means for developing countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh and their aims to increase knowledge capital to aid economic development.
Dr Arkalgud Ramaprasad describes what he believe are the main challenges in mapping out a higher education system that is fit for purpose and is able to endorse institutional aspirations to become a vital building block in a knowledge based society.
