The Knowledge Cities World Summit (KCWS), formerly the Knowledge Cities Summit, the annual conference of the World Capital Institute, makes an important reminder that ‘knowledge’ is the key notion in the 21st Century development. It aims to contribute to the discussion on the importance and trends of knowledge-based development theory and practice. Academics, professional practitioners, civil servants and policy-makers of the world are included in the discussions from a wide range of disciplines to share their knowledge and experiences with the summit delegates. In addition to significant academic and professional presentations, the Summit will also provide opportunities for practical exercises in workshops and small group sessions in innovative formats.

Summit themes include: Knowledge-based (urban) development; Knowledge-based economy and value generation; Knowledge cities, regions and societies; Knowledge cluster, enterprise and organisations; Knowledge-intensive service activities; Knowledge assets and capital systems; Knowledge workers and creative class; Creativity, innovation, technology and learning communities; Sustainable (urban) development.

KCWS is held in conjunction with the Most Admired Knowledge City (MAKCi) Award Ceremony.
