The intellectual capital management will be the subject of a seminar entitled „Firma-Idea: Realne wyzwania, niematerialne wartości” (“Firm-Idea: real challenges, intangible assets”), which is going to take place on the 22nd of March at Gdańsk University of Technology.

The event consists of two parts: scientific, which is aiming to discuss the notion of intangible assets as a legal concept and a development idea, as well as practical, during which the business world representatives will share their observations and experience related to socially demanded changes in the way companies operate. The seminar will be accompanied by the MBA diploma ceremony.

“We want our graduates, who build the value of their companies and employers, to participate in important events, which open eyes and minds to new trends in economy and show them that the university is not only a source of knowledge, but also inspiration” says Barbara Stepnowska, PhD, MBA Director at Gdańsk University of Technology.

The second, practical part, called „Nachodzi nieuchwytne. Jak zmieniać biznes, by wygrać przyszłość” (“Approaching the intangible. How to change business and win the future”) will be hosted by Ewa Sowińska, vicepresident of Krajowa Rada Biegłych Rewidentów (The National Chamber of Statutory Auditors), while the introduction will be done by Zuzanna Skalska – design, innovation and business trend analyst, as well as Aneta Chybicka, PhD – psychologist, coach and Content Director of Instytut Miasta.
