Knowledge management has evolved almost exponentially in the last decade, with new challenges for thinking of new paradigms with which to manage intangibles and create knowledge strategies for a desirable future. The complexity of knowledge management asks for new approaches in research and new interpretations based on neuroscience and knowledge dynamics. Knowledge management is not replacing classical management but enriching it with new theories and business models. Knowledge strategies are at the core of business strategies. Knowledge management is closely related to intellectual capital and makes possible its transformation from organizational potential to production force through specific thinking.

This new Topic Collection constitutes an opportunity for researchers interested in knowledge management and intellectual capital to share their ideas and findings. Studies related to knowledge management in Encyclopedia are especially welcomed.

Co-Creating Interdisciplinary Integrated Powerful Knowledge
Interdisciplinary and integrated powerful knowledge (IIPK) is the outcome of integrating multiple disciplinary perspectives and approaches to tackle challenging real-world issues. Using many disciplinary fields, IIPK is essential for problem solving, innovation, and technical breakthroughs that require careful, imaginative, and innovative application of a wide range of disciplinary knowledge. It is especially relevant when addressing socio-scientific issues, which require a comprehensive understanding of scientific, social, and ethical dimensions. Collaborative and interdisciplinary work among people with diverse backgrounds and expertise is necessary to advance IIPK, including professionals from different academic fields, policymakers, stakeholders, and community members who bring various perspectives and values to the table. The co-creation of IIPK could inform policy making, support informed decision making, and lead to more comprehensive, effective, and sustainable solutions. Theoretical underpinnings and practical applications of co-creating IIPK are discussed here based on several principles with the potential to impact current practices. The co-creation and dissemination of IIPK could use multiple platforms, such as scholarly articles, encyclopedias, and media, including social media. These platforms provide scope for co-creating powerful knowledge through a people participatory approach, which would lead to changes in practices.
