International Workshop on Innovation for Development: Converting Knowledge to Value

OECD Conference Centre - Paris, France

28-30 January 2009

This is a Workshop to examine ways in which knowledge contributes to innovation, especially in developing countries. This includes knowledge produced formally through research and development, and knowledge from other sources, informal, and indigenous, which can be combined to produce value. As the focus is on innovation, the realization of the value created is through the introduction of a new product (a good or a service) to the market, the introduction of a new process that produces products for the market, or delivers them, the use of new organizational structures or business practices, or the development of new markets or the capturing of a greater share of existing markets.
