NEW COMMUNITY ON KNOWLEDGE HUBS - COME ON BOARD!

Picking up the energy of the Bali High-Level Meeting on Knowledge Hubs, held in Bali (Indonesia) in July 2012, a new Community of Practice is providing a learning space around how to institutionalize knowledge exchange.

Experts and practitioners from around the world will discuss institutional and operational aspects of knowledge hubs. Ideas, analysis and solutions will be exchanged around hands-on issues ranging from organizational set-up options and business models, to the “how-to” of developing a knowledge offering, connecting to supply/demand, designing an effective exchange and measuring results.
