Workshop/CfP - Intangibles and Intellectual Capital Value Creation, Integrated Reporting and Governance, 21-22 September 2017, Italy

Publish Date: Jun 12, 2017

Deadline: Jun 30, 2017




EIASM is proud to announce the 13th Interdisciplinary Workshop on “Intangibles and Intellectual Capital – Value Creation, Integrated Reporting and Governance" in collaboration with the University of Ferrara and the Università Politecnica delle Marche.

The Workshop will be held on 21st and 22nd September 2017 in Ancona (Italy) within the campus of the School of Economics “G. Fuà”.

This event is intended to represent a new step in the EIASM long standing tradition in creating a forum for academic exchange on theoretical and empirical, qualitative or quantitative research in the area of Intangibles and Intellectual Capital. This Workshop will also provide an opportunity for investigating the value creation dynamics and deepening the subject areas of “Intangibles and Public Sector “ and “Intellectual Capital, Digitalisation and Information Systems” (cf. Special Tracks below)

It is also the 1st EIASM Workshop devoted to a systematic reflection on the emerging issues linked to Integrated Reporting () and Governance as well as on the relationships between and intangibles.

The measurement, reporting and management of Intangibles and Intellectual Capital at a micro, meso and macro level is becoming a focal topic for the theory and practice of various disciplines (accounting, valuation, marketing, organisation behaviour, strategy, non-financial reporting, investor relations, human resource, sustainability, etc.). More recently, the debate has been further energized by the Integrated Reporting initiative, whose focus on the value creation processes has revealed new research and practical perspectives on the complex and multifaceted role of Intangibles and Intellectual Capital in and around organizations.

It is felt that today there is a risk that the gap between the theory and practice of intangibles management, measurement and reporting may gain momentum and, therefore, there is a strong need for the development of an innovative and challenging research agenda with reference to it.


The 13th EIASM Workshop aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice  in the concerned field by fostering reflections and “prognoses” on Intangibles, Intellectual Capital and Integrated Reporting and Governance and, thus, to favour an osmosis between knowledge creation and knowledge application. In this perspective, topics of particular interest include (but they are not limited to) the following: 

  • Accounting for and reporting on intellectual capital: advances in financial accounting and business valuation;
  • Advances in the management accounting and control of intangibles and intellectual capital;
  • The role and the impact of Integrated Reporting and Integrated Governance in private and public organizations;
  • Connectivity of information and organization actions and outcomes;
  • Intangibles, intellectual capital and value creation;
  • Intangible liabilities;
  • Human resource management and accounting;
  • Customer capital management and accounting;
  • Relationships with strategic stakeholders: measurement and management;
  • Innovation and intellectual capital;
  • Production and consumption of intellectual capital measurements;
  • The perspectives offered by Business Models in measuring, managing and reporting intellectual capital and intangibles;
  • Intangibles and governance;
  • Conceptual underpinnings of intellectual capital and intangibles’ research;
  • Intangibles and risk management;
  • Intellectual capital reporting and disclosure: frameworks, benefits and drawbacks;
  • Intangibles and gender issues;
  • Non-financial information and the needs of analysts and investors;
  • Non-financial information and Integrated Reporting assurance;
  • Socio, Environmental and Economic Sustainability: reporting and governance issues.

We invite papers on any of the aforementioned topics without any specific constraints in terms of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches.

In order to contribute to bridging the above mentioned gap between theory and practice, speeches and presentations from academics and practitioners as well as roundtables will be organized to stimulate discussions regarding the “state of the art” and future avenues. Details will be announced later on.
