Knowledge Management Consulting Services
Knowledge Management can not be understood as “one fits all solution”. Therefore tailored knowledge strategies will be developed and knowledge management will be implemented in organizations. Our portfolio of consulting services can be found here: www.knowledge.city/consulting.
Collaboration in partnerships help to achieve more. We are partners of the Knowledge for Development Partneship and facilitate local partnerships and Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships. We aim at advancing research and education in Knowledge Sciences in partnership with K4DP School of Knowledge Sciences.
Research & Innovation
Improving ongoing routines and finding better solutions to be more effective in our knowledge work is at the heart of research and innovation projects. Therefore various topics related to knowledge based development and knowledge management are worked on. On a societal level we focus on the better understanding of knowledge ecosystems and how to make them more effective. Knowledge Partnerships are a key instrument for transdisciplinary research in this field.
The exchange of knowledge, innovation and technology are critical to economic development. The market for knowledge service providers has a big potential, specifically when cooperating with international partners.
