What does the ‘Knowledge Economy’ mean?

  • The Knowledge Economy is about …

  • - The Systematic ACCUMULATIONof Knowledge

  • - The Knowledge INTENSIFICATION of all forms of Work

  • - The ORGANISATION of Knowledge Processes

  • - The COMMODITISATION of Knowledge Assets

  • The TRADE of those Knowledge Assets

  • This applies to ALL industry sectors … including:

  • - Farming (… PHarming and other production sectors …)

  • - Food Production (... Fuel, fibre and other processing sectors …)


Lets start with two observations …

  • 1:PROGRESS IS … a PROCESS of

  • - SPECIALISATION,

  • - FRAGMENTATION and

  • - INTEGRATION

    2:Research is a Service Industry Sector and

    3: Knowledge is a Global Commodity

  • What are the consequences of this for the TEAGASC 2030 in the KBBE?

  • What will ILR (Innovation, Learning and Research) systems look like in 2030?


FORD: An Illustration of Specialization and Fragmentation

FORD: Production organised around the car. At one stage FORD farmed rubber in Brazil to make its own tires, it made its own steel and glass, it build and ran local railroads to link its various factories and support distribution.

What is the difference between research and innovation? research!

An organization has to ask what is important?

Research or Innovation?


What about LIR (Learning, Innovation and Research) systems in 2030?

  • 1: Develop the innovative capacities of firms in terms of their ability to:

  • Understand their knowledge needs

  • Source services (globally) to meet those needs

  • Develop knowledge-based collaboration in their supply chains

  • 2: Support the emergence of a research industry sector and research intensive services or research. In particular, facilitate access to sources of globally competitive knowledge … support innovation in research methods and systems … especially management systems …

  • 3: Support research in knowledge based service industries …
