Welcome to ECIIC 2019

The European Conference on Intellectual Capital was established 10 years ago and has been held in countries across Europe, including Spain, Slovakia, Finland, The Netherlands, Cyprus and Italy. The conference is generally attended by participants from more than 25 countries and attracts an interesting mix of academic scholars, practitioners and individuals who are engaged in various aspects of Intellectual Capital research.

A number of journals including the Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management consider papers presented at this conference for further development and publication.

A personal message from the Conference Chair

It is 20 years since intellectual capital (IC) was deemed so important to warrant the first ever international conference in Amsterdam, sponsored by the European Union. Now, while IC is known to scholars and practitioners, it is suffering an identity crisis as terms such as intellectual assets, knowledge capital, non-financial information, and intangibles. As such, this conference has added the term “intangibles” into the title to ensure that any confusion surrounding the conference subject matter is clear. However, that doesn’t not help clear the identity crisis because many scholars and practitioners are unsure of how to leverage IC and intangibles to crate economic, utility, social and environmental value, and are even unsure of what factors constitute value.

At ECIIC 2019 we will enjoy Keynote Presentations from Dr. John Dumay, Macquarie University, Australia and Prof Martin Piber, University of Innsbruck, Austria. We will also be holding a Roundtable Discussion on “Doing Research on Intangibles and Intellectual Capital: New Frontiers, Challenges and Future Scenarios” The Panellists for this include both Keynotes as well as: Prof Rosa Lombardi, University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy, Prof Stefano Marasca, University Politecnica delle Marche, Italy & Prof Stefano Zambon, Ferrara University, Italy.

The above debates are why conferences like the ECIIC are needed, so that both supporters, and detractors are able to present their research, theories and ideas that enable a broad discussion on how we can better understand and use intangibles to solve organisational wealth and utility creation problems, while not forgetting about organisations and how they impact on our wider society and help create social and environmental value. It seems IC and intangible research continues to concentrate on the former and has a lot more work to do on the latter. Thus, on behalf of the Organising Committee we encourage you to present your research to ECIIC 2019 and welcome you to Pescara to help resolve the IC and intangibles identity crisis and contribute to the ongoing IC and intangibles discourse.
