Welcome to the Knowledge Economy Network!
What started out as the European Regional Economic Forum (EREF) in 2005 gradually evolved into a Network, with the Slovenian Business & Research Association serving as its Secretariat. As of January 2011, EREF evolved into the Knowledge Economy Network (KEN) and is now registered in Brussels as a non-profit association. KEN is committed to contribute in strengthening knowledge economy and competitiveness by providing good service to its members worldwide.
The Department of Science and Technology of the Government of Republic of South Africa has accepted to host the next annual Global KEN Forum on the 22 – 23 October 2013 in Cape Town, South Africa.
Prior to the Fora, typically 4 workshops are co-organized with KEN partners. The preparatory workshops produce draft-recommendations addressing local stakeholders, national and international policy makers in the domains of knowledge economy.
