Knowledge Cities are cities that possess an economy driven by high value-added exports created through research, technology, and brainpower. In other words, these are cities in which both the private and the public sectors value knowledge, nurture knowledge, spend money on supporting knowledge dissemination and discovery (ie learning and innovation) and harness knowledge to create products and services that add value and create wealth. Currently there are 65 urban development programs worldwide formally designated as “knowledge cities.” Knowledge-based cities fall under a new area of academic research entitled Knowledge-Based Development, which brings together research in urban development and urban studies and planning with knowledge management and intellectual capital.
In this book, Francisco Javier Carillo of the Monterrey Institute of Technology (ITESM) brings together a group of distinguished scholars to outline the theory, development, and realities of knowledge cities. Based on knowledge-based development, the book shows how knowledge can be and is placed at the center of city planning and economic development to enable knowledge flows and innovation to provide a sustainable environment for high value-added products and services.

Edited by Francisco Javier Carrillo
"The first comprehensive book to deal with the Knowledge City agenda in a comprehensive fashion. It outlines the shifts in thinking and strategy required if cities are to become competitive economically, socially and culturally."
- Charles Landry Author of The Creative City: A Toolkit for Urban Innovators and The Art of City Making (scheduled 2006).
"Carrillo's Knowledge Cities is a landmark book that successfully challenges the prevailing urban planning paradigm with a powerful vision of a future based on the critical resource of human capital. This book is arguably the most important new book in urban planning since the publication of Jay Forrester's Urban Dynamics in 1969. This exciting new book is likely to soon become a standard for the next generation of urban planners and public administrators."
- Steven Cavaleri Co-author of Knowledge Leadership: The Art and Science of the Knowledge-based Organization and Senior Executive Vice President of KMCI
"Building and managing knowledge cities is a major issue for policy makers and citizens all over the World. Carrillo's book is welcome and timely to read."
- Ahmed Bounfour, Associate Professor, University of Marne-La-Vallée, France and Co-editor of Intellectual Capital for Communities: Nations, Regions and Cities
"This book provides a stimulating overview on the emerging and multidisciplinary field of knowledge cities. Theoretical and practical at the same time, Knowledge Cities sets the basis for cities value creation in the knowledge era.."
- José M. Viedma Martí, Professor of Business Administration, Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain and President of Intellectual Capital Management Systems
Few aspects of today's world may characterize better the dawn of the new millennium than the transformation of nations, regions and cities into knowledge societies. These are communities that have undertaken a deliberate and systematic initiative to develop the whole of their value elements in a balanced and sustainable manner.
This book is about the convergence of two emerging conditions of human civilization - cities and knowledge - into the Century of Knowledge Cities. In Knowledge Cities, Francisco Javier Carrillo brings together a group of distinguished scholars and practitioners from around the world to outline the theory, describe cases and identify issues for the understanding and development of knowledge cities.
Francisco Javier Carrillo Ph.D. is Director of The Center for Knowledge Systems, at The Monterrey Institute of Technology, Mexico and Chairman of The World Capital Institute.
