2023 International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics (IFKAD)
Call for Paper


The aim of IFKAD 2023 is to develop an understanding of the new approaches, models, tools and practices of knowledge and innovation management required to effectively address the growing pressures and the emerging opportunities deriving from the “sustainability agenda”.

Knowledge management has been widely acknowledged as an essential process to guarantee and support competitive organisational advantages. More recently, a renewed attention on the knowledge-based dimensions has emerged because of their fundamental role as a facilitator of strategies and enabling factors in the managerial and policy approaches and actions related to sustainability as multifaceted and complex concepts grouping environmental, political, economic, and socio-cultural issues.

The emerging context of sustainability orientation determines a set of changes in the positioning and in the business modelling of the organisations, where the issues of the social and environmental responsibility gain the same importance as the economic viability. Therefore, in this scenario, knowledge management needs to be treated as a new paradigm of development to foster compliance with the new economic, environmental and social sustainability guidelines.

Focusing on the organisations’ new demands, constraints and opportunities regarding the requirements to be fitted with the sustainability implications, a significant need for studies discussing these issues further stands in different research streams. In particular, it seems to emerge an increasing need to understand better how to improve knowledge management processes and practices to better frame and assess the environmental, social and economic impact of sustainability-driven initiatives.

At the 18th edition of IFKAD, we wish to elaborate, extend and improve theories and discuss and share findings, practices and experiences to inform academic, managerial and policy debates about the role of the knowledge drivers to stimulate and support the organisational capacity to address the emerging challenges of the sustainability. By developing and implementing new products and services, re-thought operations, new ways to conceive and use technology and digitalisation, renewed relationships with customers and stakeholders, and new business models.

We look for your contribution to making IFKAD 2023 the forum and the place to advance academic understanding of how managing knowledge organisations can face business and socio-economic challenges related to sustainability both at the micro, meso and macro-level of investigation. Moreover, IFKAD 2023 aims to provide also valuable insights to help leaders, managers and policy-makers to re-think their organisations according to a new way to perform business and services and help them to try to answer the questions about what practical initiatives might be taken going beyond the rhetoric of the “greening”.
