53°Annual Assembly CLADEA 2018

San José, Costa Rica
  • Partners
We kindly invite you to join the 53°Annual Assembly CLADEA 2018, taking place from 7–9 October in San José, Costa Rica. The event will focus on the topic of “Innovation and knowledge, cornerstones of a land’s productivity and prosperity".

The continuous search for development and sustainability must be a relevant topic for every country, as it improves its people’s life quality. In pursue of this goal, organizations implement important strategies in a local, regional and global context, innovation and knowledge being central values in the economic growth models. Because of their very nature, both are core values that play a significant role on different nation’s efforts to improve capacities and resources made to face the challenges of modern day. The full understanding of the globalization concept, as well as other ones derived from it, such as social and productive dependency, put together with the constant interaction with the world’s different interest groups (clients, providers, investors and academics), define a new way of dealing with global growth and sustainability needs.

CLADEA’s 53th Annual Assembly 2018 will be a fine chance to share different thematic approaches in the context of track variety and plenary meetings settled for this Congress. How innovation and knowledge contribute to the productivity improvement and the land’s prosperity and how have we dealt with the challenges that hinder innovation and progress will be focal points of the Congress. We will share the findings of researchers from different continents; this way not only new bonds between the participants will arise, but past ones will be strengthened. This event, which has the purpose of promoting the development of knowledge in a collective effort, is the space many pursue in order to stablish cooperation alliances that desire joint activities between CLADEA members. Furthermore, successful business people in the field of models of innovation and knowledge creation implementation will share their experiences.

We and the country of Costa Rica will be glad to welcome you. This over 50.000 kilometers land has been blessed by Mother Nature and has a population with high happiness standards. In Costa Rica also great natural diversity in both plants and animals can be found, as well as beaches and mountains. Your participation is highly awaited. We will be glad to provide you with the finest academic and social attention. It is a great honor for the EAE TEC (Business Management School of Costa Rica Tecnológico, by its initials in Spanish), through its Management, Economy and Techological Management Investigation Center, to be the host of CLADEA’s 53th Annual Assembly. A work program that will allow making the best use of time and stimulates a more successful learning of the Congress’ topics will be offered.
