!The Global Network for Economics of Learning, Innovation, and Competence Building Systems (Globelics) is an international network of scholars who apply the concept of "learning, innovation, and competence building system" (LICS) as a framework for promoting inclusive and sustainable development in developing countries, emerging economies and societies in transition. The research aims at locating unique systemic features as well as generic good practices to enlighten policy making relating to innovation, competence building, international competitiveness, regional development, labor market and human capital development. In an increasingly global and knowledge-based competition, both management strategies and policy need to be based upon an understanding of how globalization changes these framework conditions.
Regional chapters of Globelics have been developed in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Mediterranean region (Asialics, AfricaLics, Lalics and MEDAlics). In some big countries national networks have been established (CICALICS in China and Indialics).”
Apart from providing training for PhD scholars through the Globelics Academies in Rio, Lisbon and Tampere, Globelics organizes annual conferences. Until now eleven Globelics conferences have been organized. The first conference was held in 2003, at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, it was followed by the second conference at Beijing, China (2004), the third conference at Tshwane (Pretoria), South Africa (2005), the fourth in Trivandrum, India (2006), the fifth in Saratov, Russia (2007), the sixth in Mexico City, Mexico (2008), the seventh in Dakar, Senegal (2009), the eighth in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2010), the ninth in Buenos Aires, Argentina (2011), the tenth in China (2012) and the eleventh in Turkey (2013). Leading scholars from both developed and developing countries in the field of innovation, technological change and development have attended these meetings.
