Interlocking Firm Networks in the German Knowledge Economy. On Local Networks and Global Connectivity

Markusen 1996 ). While the world’s major cities are being pulled closer together in relational terms, smaller cities and peripheral areas are being left behind. The growing relevance of the knowledge economy and its tendencies towards both spatial concentration and global dispersal have induced new forms of hierarchical and network development, as well as functional differentiation between cities and towns leading to the emergence of polycentric Mega-City Regions. This newly-emerging urban form is spread out over a large area containing a number of physically separated

ICT solutions in intelligent organizations as challenges in a knowledge economy

Summary

Solutions of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) are the foundation of modern economic organizations in a knowledge economy. This is the case in particular in intelligent organizations, for which the advanced ICT infrastructure is the sine qua non condition for the effective knowledge management. This article is aimed at describing the role of modern ICT trends, which are described as SMAC, (Social, Mobility, Analytics, Cloud), and are becoming an essential ICT element supporting management processes. Such solutions enable to create new models of organization operations on the global markets using strategic resources, such as the knowledge supported with SMAC solutions. The arguments are illustrated with results of own research conducted by the author in 2014-2016 in selected SME’s from the Mazowieckie and Wielkopolskie rovinces and their reference to the general development trends in this area.

The Knowledge Economy and the Activation of Scientific and Technological Progress: Contemporary Challenges

Abstract

This article is dedicated to the problems and processes of the activation of scientific and technological progress in the context of contemporary challenges of the creation of a knowledge-based society and knowledge economy. The main focus here is on activating innovations, scientific and technological progress and creating various preconditions for the development of a knowledge-based society and knowledge economy. The contemporary processes and phenomena of innovations of scientific and technological progress and of its activation are analyzed in a complex manner; the needs for the purposeful activation and acceleration of scientific and technological progress, in particular in response to the aspirations of the knowledge-based society and the creation of a knowledge economy, are investigated in the presented material. The role and importance of innovation activities and the acceleration of scientific and technological advance in the context of the creation of a knowledge-based society and a knowledge economy are revealed and highlighted. New ideas of the search and use of synergetic effects, as well as a new theoretical approach based on the so-called universal principle of the creation of a “new quality,” are described. The results of the presented research can be used for preparing practical recommendations and methodologies that could be applied in the creation and implementation of the managerial and economic instruments and support systems aimed at the purpose of activating the processes of innovations and scientific and technological progress. These recommendations and methodolies could also be utilized in the development of international relations in the context of what is required in the creation of a knowledge-based society and knowledge economy. It is shown that the problems and processes of scientific and technological progress can be appreciated as an extremely important and viable field of scientific research on the creation and development of a knowledge economy.

The Problems of Knowledge Economy and Innovation Processes in Agriculture Case Study of the Nitra Region

Abstract

Agriculture is an important element of rural economy development, currently facing many problems. The unfinished process of economic transformation, division of land use and land ownership, disintegrated social networks, under-developed institutions – these are the problems hindering the knowledge economy enforcement. Among the agricultural enterprises there is a high level of distrust resulting into low cooperation, reluctance against partnerships and networks which represent the main instrument for knowledge economy enforcement. Moreover, the current EU agricultural policy which is adjusted for agricultural conditions in the old member states hampers innovation activities of agricultural enterprises and conserves inefficient structures in them.

Information Technologies in Knowledge Economy

Abstract

This paper analyses the importance of information and communication technologies in knowledge management and the impact on the increase of competitive advantage of organizations of their independent neighbouring countries. Comparative analysis has been conducted for the Republic of Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The data of the World Economic Forum concerning the use of information technologies served as the baseline for this study. Moreover, the data from job advertisements announced by employers in these three countries during the period March-May 2013 have been experimentally analyzed. The results show that the application of information technologies is almost the same in all three countries, amounting to approximately 65%.
