Session 4. Knowledge based capital (KBC) and global value chains (GVCs)

This session aims to discuss work related to the measurement of investment in Knowledge Based Capital (KBC) and analysis of the links between KBC and global value chains (GVCs)

A first presentation will summarise the main findings and policy implications of the EU-sponsored “Smart Public Intangibles (SPINTAN)”, to which the OECD Secretariat has contributed. Among SPINTAN’s main goals are the construction of a public intangible database for a number of OECD countries and the analysis of the impact of public sector intangiles on innovation and growth.

  • Paper by Matilde Mas (Universitat de València and Ivie): The “Smart Public Intangibles (SPINTAN)”: Project: Main findings and policy implications

A second presentation will discuss OECD Secretariat work addressing the relationships existing between global innovation networks and global value chains, and the possible implications for government and policy of such links.

  • Paper by Luca Marcolin (OECD): KBCs and GVCs

A third presentation will provide evidence based on INTAN-INVEST data as well as TiVA data about investment in intangible assets and participation in global value chains.

  • Paper by Cecilia Jona-Lasinio (ISTAT and LLEE): Intangible assets and participation in global value chains: An analysis on a sample of European countries.
