Globelics International Conference 2023 -Innovation-Driven Knowledge-Economies and Transformation in the Global South.

The Globelics network was started twenty years ago with the first international conference held in Rio de Janeiro in 2003. The main aim of the Network was to focus on Learning, Innovation and Competence-building Systems (LICS) to understand the nexus between innovation and development. This 20th anniversary conference will use the opportunity to reflect on insights generated by the network and the future research agenda.
