The knowledge economy or knowledge industry is a sector of the economy that uses information as a fundamental element to generate value and wealth through its transformation into knowledge. What does it contemplate? Education, research, high technology, information technology, telecommunications, robotics, nanotechnology and the aerospace industry, among others.
By itself, the knowledge economy does not generate value through its transformation, but creates the so-called “added value” in the services and goods that require their participation. It is argued that “Knowledge is much more than simple information: information is a data processed with general utility, while knowledge means forms, methods and methods of approaching and solving problems”.
