The role of intangibles in the value creation.
Experience from Germany
Recently a lot of focus has been on the German economy for its stability in difficult economic
times. The key role in the German success played the “Mittelstand” (German for mid-sized
and family owned companies), which was the main driver for the export industry and a low
rate of unemployment. Some of the underlying facts for this phenomenon may be used as
inspiration for the European Commission project LEGEND1 of how to curb innovation and
growth based on SME (small and midsized companies) in the region of Kosice. The project is
funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme – Leonardo da Vinci – and responds to a weak
connection of the Slovak labour market and vocational training system.
