The International Congress of Knowledge and Innovation (ciKi) began in 2011 under the leadership of the Graduate Program in Engineering and Knowledge Management (EGC) of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC).

Currently, ciKi is a traveling event in the Americas promoted by the EGC/UFSC, the Scientific and Technological Park (TECNOPUC) of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS) and the Colégio de las Américas Program (COLAM) of the Interamerican University Organization (OUI), in partnership with numerous institutions and higher education organizations in the Americas.

There were eight editions that revolved around the conceptual development, methodology and practice in Knowledge Management, Intellectual Capital and Innovation Management.
