This special issue presents the extended version of selected papers presented at the ICONIS 2019 congress. All the accepted papers will follow a strict peer review process so they reach the quality standards of an international journal.
The ICONIS 2019 congress is related to the Iberoamerican Network of Competitiveness, Innovation and Development (REDCID) that is part of the networks endorsed by the Ibero-American Program of Science and Technology for Development (CYTED), whose main objective is to quantify the multiplying effect of light innovation capabilities in the company and its impact on the progress and well-being of Iberoamerica. More than 10 universities at the Ibero-American level are affiliated to this network.
The main themes of the special issue are focused on innovation because in order to have a knowledge-driven economy knowledge-based organizations are needed (Yildirmaz et al., 2018; Merigo et al. 2016). In order to do that, a variety of disciplines like engineering, management, economics, business and many more are applied and combined in order to generate different types of innovation (Hashimoto, 2012). A common characteristics in the innovation process is the necessity to reduce uncertainties and risks (Koschatzky, 1998).
The other main topic of the conference is the use of fuzzy methodologies (Merigo et al. 2015; Zadeh, 1965) that allow improving decision making in organizations within different strategic areas (Blanco-Mesa et al., 2017; Gil-Lafuente, 2005). Within the fuzzy methodologies that helps to incorporate the expertise, knowledge and expectations of the decision maker is the Ordered Weighted Average (OWA) operator developed by Yager (1988) and of which several extensions have been developed (He et al. 2017; Yager et al., 2011).
