Hearn, Gregory N. & Rooney, David (2008) Introduction. In Hearn, Gregory N. & Rooney, D (Eds.) Knowledge Policy: Challenges for the 21st Century. Edward Elgar Publishing Limited, United Kingdom, pp. 1-10.
The production of knowledge has become central to economic life. Competitiveness in the 21st century market place is now characterized by the ability to translate scientific and technological knowledge into innovation. But does this render cultural and social knowledge unimportant? This unique book advocates a broader epistemological base for the term ‘knowledge’ and develops policy implications from this perspective. By examining long-term challenges, the volume argues that fresh policy thinking is needed not only in the obviously knowledge-intensive portfolios but across all areas of knowledge production and questions how the different dynamics of the knowledge era affect defence, employment, environment, indigenous and international relations, multiculturalism and urban policy.
