Theme: Partnerships for innovation-based development
The 12th Globelics Conference is organized in collaboration between Addis Ababa University and the Globelics Secretariat at Aalborg University, Denmark and held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. As with previous conferences, the conference intends to bring together scholars from different disciplines to enhance the quality of innovation studies in relation to development and growth in the context of globalization and accelerating pace of change. The conference will combine presentation of research papers in parallel tracks with panel discussions and plenary lectures. This year’s key note lectures will be given by the world leading scholars on innovation and development, Martin Bell (the 2014 Freeman Lecture) and Jorge Katz (the 2014 Globelics Lecture).
