Call for Papers: 3rd Annual Copenhagen Conference on Partnerships

The 3rd Annual Copenhagen Conference on Partnerships "Creating Value through Knowledge Sharing in Inter-organizational Partnerships" & International Journal of Strategic Business Alliances
invite researchers to submit their papers to this timely conference. Selected papers will be considered for publication in the Special Issues of IJSBA.

Firms and organizations may significantly improve their knowledge and innovative capabilities by leveraging the skills of others through the transfer and sharing of knowledge with external partners. However, inter-organizational knowledge management is a complex phenomenon and in practice, successful sharing of knowledge is often not easy to achieve. The focus of this year’s conference is on how value is created through effective governance of knowledge sharing processes in inter-organizational partnerships.

This conference invites researchers and practitioners from a variety of fields to elaborate upon theoretical and practical issues related to the effective management of knowledge in strategic alliances and partnerships. While the focus will be on value-creation via knowledge management practices, we invite contributions within a range of related areas, such as (but not limited to):

  1. Performance measurement in alliances; how do/should firms measure the outcome of knowledge transfer and sharing?
  2. Motivation for knowledge sharing; how do/should firms and organizations encourage individuals and groups to share knowledge across organizational borders?
  3. Knowledge governance; how do/should firms organize activities for effective knowledge sharing?
  4. Trust and knowledge management; what is the role of social capital in inter-organizational knowledge sharing?

The purpose of the conference is to encourage dialogue between partnership professionals and academics. Both theoretical and empirical submissions are welcome. A cross-disciplinary and practical emphasis is particularly encouraged.

Submissions & Deadlines: Full Papers: 1 August 2009 to
Notification: 15 August 2009 Conference registration: 12 October 2009
