These proceedings represent the work of researchers presenting at the 17th European Conference on Knowledge Management (ECKM 2016). We are delighted to be hosting ECKM at the Ulster University, Northern Ireland, UK on the 1-2 September 2016.
The conference will be opened with a keynote from Alistair Fee, a European specialist in Design Thinking and Innovation.

The second day will be opened by Major Barry Byrne from The Irish Defence Forces, Dublin with a presentation on the topic of “IKON, a case study of a multi award winning knowledge Management programme in a 9000+ organisation”.
ECKM is an established platform for academics concerned with current research and for those from the wider community involved in Knowledge Management to present their findings and ideas to peers from the KM and associated fields. ECKM is also a valuable opportunity for face to face interaction with colleagues from similar areas of interests. The conference has a well-established history of helping attendees advance their understanding of how people, organisations, regions and even countries generate and exploit knowledge to achieve a competitive advantage, and drive their innovations forward. The range of issues and mix of approaches followed will ensure an interesting two days.
