3rd Virtual Mini Symposium: Future paths of Knowledge Management: The role of Spirituality, Cognitive Science and Sustainability in Knowledge Management of the future

The virtual mini symposium will be held online via Zoom:https://short.wu.ac.at/spirit-km

Save the Date:  --> postponed to November, 27 and 28

The field of knowledge management (KM) has undergone a fundamental transformation, and it seems a perfect time to reflect on new ideas to re-specify the future role of KM research and practice in a changing and increasingly dynamic world. In 2022, our Knowledge Management Group at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, Austria launched a new virtual symposium series on the future of KM. This third session is now dedicated to the role of spirituality, cognitive science and sustainability in Knowledge Management of the future.

There is strong empirical evidence that the topics of sustainability, cognitive science and spirituality are more important than ever - for both individuals and organizations. What role - if any - could Knowledge Management play in this context? What role could "Spiritual Knowledge Management" play in future KM research?

The Knowledge Management Group at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, Austria, in collaboration with the OCKO – Organizing Cognition in Knowing Organizations Research Group at the University of Vienna, Austria, is organizing the third session of this virtual symposium series to shed light on all these topics on

Mon, 27 November, 4.00 – 6.30 p.m. (CET)

Tue,  28 November, 4.00 – 6.30 p.m. (CET)

The aim of this virtual mini-symposium is to share perspectives, gather ideas, and spark the discussion about the future of KM.

Well-known researchers will share their thoughts and present their ideas. Three short presentations per evening will stimulate the subsequent discussion. We invite researchers, practitioners and people interested in the topic alike to attend the symposium and participate in the discussion.

  • Emiko Tsuyuki "Self Recognition in Western and Eastern Culture: Exploring Selflessness in the Japanese "ba(place)" Concept"

  • Alexander Kaiser, Markus F. Peschl and Birgit Fordinal "Spiritual Knowledge Management and the phronetically enacted self"
