Azores. Knowledge. City
Azores.Knowledge.City was chosen as the headquarter for the Lusophone countries which include Portugal and Brazil so far.
Locally, the focus is on the qualification and innovation of Azorean businesses through a knowledge management perspective. This is a historical region and is important to have in mind that some practices and technologies are already developed by someone or company in the region but it may be unknown by the majority of the population. The main goal is to promote the exchange of information with other islands of the archipelago as well with other islands in the world with similar characteristics.
In line with the service offering of Knowledge.City, Vienna, Austria, our services include the following:
- Education & Training
The Knowledge Management Institute, a project of Knowledge.Hub, provides a growing number of educational and training services including certification courses, open and in-house training as well as online webinars focused on the knowledge challenges in various sectors. The Certified Knowledge Management Course is a flagship programme offered in all Knowledge.cities.

Building on international network of expert organisations, Knowledge.Hub facilitates the transfer of technology and knowledge services to address urgent knowledge needs. It acts as the incubator and business development agent for the establishment of new companies and institutions.
Our plan for the next stage is to set up Knowledge Management Institute for Capacity Building, Research and Innovation. It will be an institution with wide global network. This is of paramount importance as the future will be more and more knowledge driven, with extensive demand for Knowledge, Innovation, Technology and Learning.
