A short photo impression of the GLOBELICS 2009 DAKAR conference of October 6-8, 2009.
GLOBELICS (Global Network for Economics of Learning, Innovation, and Competence Building Systems) is an international network of scholars who apply the concept of "learning, innovation, and competence building system" (LICS) as their framework and are dedicated to the strengthening of LICS in developing countries, emerging economies and societies in transition. The research aims at locating unique systemic features as well as generic good practices to enlighten policy making relating to innovation, competence building, international competitiveness, regional development, labor market and human capital development. In an increasingly global and knowledge-based competition, management strategies need to be based upon an understanding of these framework conditions and the public policies which seek to regulate the environment.
The 2009 conference was organised by CRES-UCAD in Dakar and UNU-MERIT. Please visit the conference website at: globelics2009dakar.merit.unu.edu
