Knowledge Management trainings

This will include the following topics (as example):
- knowledge management and performance,
- knowledge as a key driver to a conducive work place,
- relational capital,
- knowledge and the economic environment
Knowledge consultancy 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.
The network of Knowledge Cities Uganda facilitates dialogue and mutual learning in local knowledge partners. The first membership meeting was part of the Knowledge Week.
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.
In terms of business development the transfer of technology and knowledge services to address urgent knowledge needs is facilitated. Knowledge City Uganda acts as an incubator and business development agent for the establishment of new companies and institutions.
The 1st African Knowledge for Development Partnership Meeting took place in August 2019 and was a great success. The main topic of “Knowledge Management in the public sector” was lively discussed.
