The NCP Fall Meeting took place on October 20-21, 2022, in Barcelona. The meeting was initiated by the club members Professor Jose Maria Viedma Marti, Julia Manzanas Mondejar, and Dr. Heloisa Oliveira. Many thanks to them for the excellent reception of the NCP community and the possibility to meet representatives of the Collegi d’Economistes de Catalunya, Associacio Catalana de Compatabilitat i Direccio ACCID, and Generalitat de Catalunya ACCIO.
The meeting discussed issues related to the creation of sustainable wealth in the global knowledge economy. Discussions focused on the role of institutions, changes in regional intellectual capital, the impact of emerging technologies, as well as trust, ethics, and negotiation.
Many thanks to the Collegi d’Economistes de Catalunya, Associacio Catalana de Compatabilitat i Direccio ACCID, and Generalitat de Catalunya ACCIO for their cooperation with the NCP and active contribution to knowledge capital development in the region.
Also, NCP members visited the Barcelonian Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) which is an international biomedical research institute of excellence in the region. The latest genetic engineering solutions that save humanity from the most complex diseases are developed here. More than 500 people implement their research including a lot of ERC grantees developing their ideas here in the center. Many spin-offs are born here thanks to doctors, engineers, mathematicians, microbiologists, genetic engineers, and entrepreneurs. Well-organized talent management, knowledge transfer, and intellectual capital development solutions contribute enormously to the progress of the region.
On behalf of the NCP community many thanks to the director of the CRG Luis Serrano Pubul and the head of the infrastructure Eduard Sabido for exchanging know-how with the NCP community visiting the region. And big thanks to Julia Manzanas Mondejar, Dr. Heloisa Oliveira, and Jose Maria Viedma for this wonderful opportunity.
The NCP Summer Meeting and the General Assembly took place on the 23rd-25th of June in Potsdam along with the 17th ICKM conference held there. The NCP community had a great opportunity to meet face-to-face again after more than 3 years of the Pandemic period.
The remote initiatives and workshops held during the Pandemic were discussed in the meeting acknowledging that the NCP Working groups were successfully moving forward in their activities during that period.
The survey results regarding the NCP’s vision were discussed. The NCP Board was renewed. Three new members were invited to join the Club as full members.
The members were engaged in participating and presenting their research at the ICKM. Lots of live discussions and talks with the international community on the latest issues of the knowledge economy took place.
Two round table discussions with the Potsdam city administration and the Potsdam community on how to transform the City from a Science City to a City of Knowledge in order to foster its development were initiated by the NCP. An excellent city tour around Potsdam was organized.
And last, but not least, the NCP community had a lot of enjoyable moments together after three years of not meeting in person. The photos below capture just some of them.
How can we map desired futures together?
Positive Cartography’s Mapathon 21 is launching in less than 4 weeks.
Dates: 23 – 24 – 25 September 2021
A three-day event that invites people and groups from different countries and backgrounds to organize Positive Cartography sessions around the question:
‘What does the world look like in 2025, beyond Covid-19?‘
This Mapathon invites you to think in a positive way about the world you would like to live in – in 2025, beyond Covid-19 – and about the steps needed to get there.
Let’s over-voice together the negative images of the future so prevalent in the media. So many people are disheartened by the negative prognosis of many recent attempts to anticipate the future. Dark and frightening predictions are a wake-up call, but they can also scare people into apathy. Positive images focus the imagination, and can move us to action. Positive maps help us navigate the future.
Get in touch for more information and join Mapathon 21.

It is thus important to empower and to develop research on specific gender topics, in order to acquire a clearer understanding and to obtain important insights.
Now in its second year the International Conference on Gender Research intends to be established in the cutting edge of gender research and we welcome everyone researching in this area to present their work and to the scientific community.

WICI Symposium 2018 at WASEDA University
on 30 November 2018
The “2018 WICI symposium” on Friday November 30, 2018 aims to offer opportunities to look back at the achievements by WICI during 10 years and explore further agendas through discussions among presenters and participants. In other words, in the light of the situation where reportedly, at least over 400 hundred listed companies make public integrated report, we consider the symposium as an opportunity to ensure the strategy for companies and organizations—focusing on relations with the society while confirming their raisons d’être, to further employ integrated reporting as the tools of communications with stakeholders to provide clear understandings of the value creation stories to enhance the processes for value creation.
