K.I.T.F.E.M. – Knowledge and Innovation in, to and from Emerging Markets


The European Commission has successfully approved the first scientific deliverable from Goettingen University within the project K.I.T.F.E.M. (Knowledge and Innovation in, to and from Emerging Markets) – A review on expatriate knowledge transfer to and from emerging markets.

The related work package within the project titled “Expatriates as agents of knowledge transfer” investigates the opportunities and challenges of knowledge acquisition and transfer of different types of expatriates with special focus on emerging countries. In the literature review, several promising directions for future studies were identified, such as reverse knowledge transfer from developing countries involving inpatriates and repatriates. The review laid foundations for the upcoming qualitative and quantitative studies involving different types of expatriates at different stages of their assignments, which will explore expatriate knowledge transfer in greater depth (scheduled for 2018-2019).

K.I.T.F.E.M. is a collaborative project and staff exchange program between 22 partners from academia, industry and public administration from 10 countries running until the end of 2019. The project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 734447.
