In today’s "Post-Industrial Era", economic growth is mainly driven by the accumulation and application of knowledge. Knowledge is widely recognized as a resource that is critical for explaining performance differences, innovation, market dynamics, and governance issues. The purpose of the SMS 28th Annual International Conference in Cologne is to advance the current understanding of how knowledge matters.
