The Hybrid Capital Research Group is exploring the multiple meanings of
capital. The project is located at Stockholm University Business School and
organized by the Marketing Technology Center of Stockholm and the European
Center for Art and Management with funding from the Swedish Postal System.

The first workshop on Hybrid Capital was convened by

Prof. Pierre Guillet de Monthoux, Stockholm University, and
Fil.kand. Erik Kruse, Marketing Technology Center.

The workshop took place from March 19 to March 23 in Helsinki, Finland and
in Stockholm. Participants included

Prof. Ken Friedman, Norwegian School of Management, Oslo, Norway
Prof. Ekkehard Kappler, University of Innsbruck, Austria
Prof. Thomas Polesie, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
Ms. Karin Pott, Director, Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin, Germany
Prof. Andrea Saba, University of Rome, Italy
Dr. Claus Otto Scharmer, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston, USA

One result of the workshop is a decision to publish a book based on
workshop presentations and discussions.

At this time, we invite articles on themes related to hybrid capital. By
hybrid capital, we mean the different forms of assets or resources used by
organizations for productivity and value creation in addition to financial
capital and fixed assets. Human capital, intellectual capital and
structural capital are all forms of hybrid capital.

Articles may focus on themes raised at the workshop and on issues or themes
of related interest:

accounting of immaterial resources
capital as the creation of economic meaning
"gestaltung" as a form of capital formation
human and material capital problems and opportunities
value formation in art and economics
image capital and brand value as a corporate asset
interorganizational relationships as productive assets
dialogue as a tool of measurement in organizations
mental maps and qualitative representation
distinction between robust and decorative ideas of intellectual capital
capturing information versus developing information as forms of measurement
macroeconomic perspectives on hybrid capital in regional development
notions of hybrid as a mix of paralleled contrasts
philosophical dualism in the context of management and economics
aesthetic dimensions of economic thought

Our emerging focus is dialogue with an emphasis on capital and economics as
frameworks of concrete activity. In addition, we want to survey the current
state of research and thinking on hybrid capital by inviting different
perspectives and frames of reference, including contributions from fields
outside management studies and economics. The book will offer an
opportunity for supporting, contrasting and divergent views on these

The Hybrid Capital Research Group will continue to meet and work as a
colloquium to develop these ideas and maintain contact with interested
scholars and researchers.

Proposals and drafts for articles should be sent to editor Ken Friedman by
April 20, 1997. Proposals and drafts may be sent in paper format, by email
attachment in Microsoft Word 6.0 or Microsoft Word 5.0 or in the body of an
email itself. Authors can expect a preliminary response by late May with
time to make changes and to format the article for final publication in
late summer.
