Event ended
EIASM is proud to announce the 12th Workshop on “Intangibles, Intellectual Capital and Extra-Financial Information” in collaboration with the University of Ferrara and the National Research University Higher School of Economics, the leading university in Russia in the fields of economics, finance and management.

The Workshop will be held on 22-23 September 2016 at HSE Saint Petersburg.

This event will represent a new step in the EIASM long standing tradition of creating a forum for academic exchange of theoretical and empirical qualitative or quantitative research in the area of intellectual capital (IC).The measurement, reporting and management of IC at the firm-level has become a central topic in the growth strategies everywhere in the world, because of the inevitable movement towards knowledge economy on a global basis. The questions linked to the role of IC in enhancing the changes and creative destruction in firms and industries in order to increase value creation processes, are amongst the priorities on the corporate and governments’ agenda. There is a strong need for evidence-based and practice-relevant academic research in the broad field of Intangibles and IC to help firms from developed as well as from emerging markets face global challenges in their economic, social and regulatory contexts.

The 12th EIASM Workshop aims to stimulate the discussion on, and to showcase advances in our knowledge and understanding of, a variety of questions that remain still unsolved as well as to contribute to the building of a more robust bridge between academics and practitioners. In this perspective, topics of particular interest include (but they not limited to) the following: 

  • The progress in measurements and metrics for different components of IC;The measurement of IC, industrial profiles and possible standardization;
  • IC management and measurement in industrial clusters;
  • The roles of IC in the sustainability and growth of financial sector;
  • IC management in banks;
  • Innovation in risk management and reputation of financial institutions;
  • IC management in financial turmoil;

  • Accounting for IC: the progress and the limitations in financial and managerial accounting;
  • Non-financial information and the needs of analysts and investors;
  • The benefits and limitations of Intangibles/IC reporting and disclosure in various situations and contexts;
  • Intangibles management, measurement and reporting in the public sector;
  • Management and development of IC in public sector entities (universities, health organisations, public local and regional authorities; central governmental entities, etc.);
  • The power and the future of Integrated Reporting for corporate and not-for-profit sectors;
  • The emergence of Frameworks for measuring and reporting of Intangibles (cf. WICI Intangibles Reporting Framework).

In order to support the strengthening of the connection between academia and practice, the Workshop will invite international keynote speakers from both sides and arrange for roundtable discussions on the best practices emerging on the above mentioned topics and areas.
