Workshop: Institutions, networks and the ICT industry in China
June 5, 2014 - 09:15-12:00
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become an indispensable part of the life of people throughout the globe. China is no exception and today there are more Internet and mobile phone subscribers in China than in any other country in the world. ICTs are however far from offering a ubiquitous solution to manage continued economic prosperity, social integration and environmental sustainability in China. While ICTs on the one hand allow for more efficient communication and knowledge transfer, it is also on the other hand subject to strict government regulation. The conflict between freedom and control naturally transcends the commercial space where ICT is developed and used. This workshop brings together scholars of the Chinese ICT industry to present and discuss issues related to business networks, technological development, ICT regions and the impact of institutional structures on ICT development (see abstracts for a more detailed description of the presentations). The workshop presentations are open to the public.
