The Knowledge Economy and Society worldview has evolved over the last twenty years into a major theory, policy and practice framework concerning the social, economic and political dimensions of country development dynamics. Substantial progress in academic research as well as practice-focused projects has revealed the power and effectiveness of applying Knowledge Economy and Society thinking and concepts in interventions concerning human and intellectual capital development, cultural and societal as well as organizational transformation, and environmental remediation and protection.
Public Authority for Applied Education and Training, PAAET, the largest academic institution in Kuwait, is organizing Heading Global 2016 to enhance the research areas in the fields of Knowledge Economy and Society and strengthen the connection between industry and academia.
