The International Congress of Knowledge and Innovation - Ciki seeks to promote the conceptual, methodological and practical development of Knowledge Management, Intellectual Capital and Innovation Management.
The event is an initiative of the postgraduate program in Engineering and Knowledge Management of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), the Scientific and Technological Park (TECNOPUC) of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS) and the Program College of the Americas (COLAM) of the Inter-American University Organization (IOHE), in partnership with several educational institutions and organizations in Latin America. It is a technical-scientific space in which researchers, decision makers, managers and professionals can collaborate, debate, develop or share theories, methodologies, tools and experiences in these fields. Throughout its history, Ciki has consolidated itself as a space for the exchange of ideas, experiences and trends relevant to the management of knowledge and management of innovation, in the public sector, in the private and academic sectors.
