Network building among academia, firms and government, aiming at mobilising scientific and technological knowledge to meet solutions to specific problems of the productive and social sectors, is a subject that deserves analytical and theoretical attention particularly in the South.

The study of collaborations among academia, firms and government reveals a complex set of relationships that are proper of an interactive model of knowledge production. The creation of knowledge networks has been stimulated by learning process among actors and a set of policy mechanisms applied at the regional and local levels, that are favouring the development and transmission of scientific and technological knowledge.

This session aims at discussing the impact that the new forms of generation of knowledge, the different ways of disseminating it among actors and the forms of appropriation of that resource are having upon the capitalisation of knowledge.

In this sub-track the discussion will be centred upon the formation of “knowledge based social capital” and the effects of this form of capitalisation of knowledge upon development purposes, particularly in developing countries. The main question to be addressed is if this “knowledge based social capital” could lead to development purposes?
