The Challenges for Knowledge-Based Economies
September 21 - 22, 2006, Marina Congress Center, Helsinki, Finland

Dear Participants,

We would like to welcome you to the conference “Going Global: the Challenges for Knowledge-Based Economies”, Helsinki, Finland,
21 - 22 of September 2006.

The focus of the event is on the challenges that globalisation poses to knowledge-based economies. The conference deals with globalisation vis-à-vis S&T, innovation systems, economies, societies and development. It encompasses theoretical, empirical and pragmatic aspects and investigates the role of both economic agents and policy makers.

The conference takes place under the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union. It is organised by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, under the auspices of the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Finland, the European Commission and the “Six Countries Programme".

We hope the conference would constitute a constructive forum for discussing both current and future trends of globalisation, in developed and developing countries alike.

Sincerely yours,

Anssi Paasivirta   Prof. Erkki KM Leppävuori
State Secretary
