INGINEUS participated in the 9th GLOBELICS International Conference on "Creativity,  Innovation and Economic Development" held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 15-17 November 2011.

GLOBELICS (Global Network for the Economics of Learning, Innovation, and Competence Building Systems) is an international network of scholars who apply the concept of “learning, innovation, and competence building system” (LICS) as their framework and are dedicated to the strengthening of LICS in developing countries, emerging economies and societies in transition.

The 9th GLOBELICS International Conference was organised around the following topics:

  • innovation, inequality and sustainable development
