On June 6, in the framework of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, a session was held, titled "Partnership and Knowledge-Sharing: New Sources to Drive Development?"
New economic reality requires that partnerships are established among companies, regions and countries. In the long run, the key to success is one’s readiness to exchange their experience and knowledge, including with their rivals. In an ever-changing environment, the business models built on partnership and cooperation are more sustainable than the traditional ones. How should companies, governments and international organizations adapt to this new reality? What would be their motivation to openly share expertize? Which instruments and formats of interaction could help consolidate and diffuse knowledge effectively? And what can help ensure sustainable development against the background of excessive, but often unstructured data?
