‘A global conference that crosses disciplines like no other’

There has been a number of annual international conferences on innovation, entrepreneurship (not enterprise) and knowledge transfer in recent years, but none has really attempted to provide a common, fertile global platform for practitioners and subject experts in the fields to cross-fertilise ideas and provide insights into emerging issues and challenges. The International  Conference on Knowledge, Innovation and Enterprise (KIE Conference) fills this gap. Add this to the KIE conference innovation – the in-fill Big Data Summit, the result is a truly global cross disciplines conference.

As I look forward to meeting up with you in Prague, Czech on 18th July 2018, I hope your contribution at the conference will help our global economies to strengthen the links in the knowledge, creativity, innovation and enterprise chain.
