Knowledge, People and Digital Transformation - Approaches for a Sustainable Future

Title: Knowledge, People and Digital Transformation - Approaches for a Sustainable Future

Keywords: Knowledge Management, Digital Transformation, Sustainability

Coordinator: Florinda Matos – ICLab - Intelectual Capital Research Center – ICAA

Starting Date: 12/2018

Project Goals: The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, are the world's greatest proposal to build a better world for people and for our planet by 2030. However, the digital transformation of the economy along with political and organizational amnesia about the values of a society that works for the common good may call into question this plan.

The objective of this project is to explore the role of knowledge, on its different forms (intellectual capital management or knowledge management), in a context of digital transformation, where the people, commonly seen as human capital, have an important role as guardians of a more sustainable society, guided by ethical principles in which technology, innovation and development are placed at the service of the good and the people.

Project Outputs: A book will be published by Springer-Verlag with an expected completion date of July 2019.
