“Knowledge is at the heart of Uganda´s Vision 2040.”
Mary Suzan Abbo
Managing Director of
Knowledge City Uganda and K4DP
We focus on:
Activly shaping the Agenda 2040 and therefore the Agenda Knowledge will be developed for Uganda
A Knowledge Partnership which is formed so that one can benefit from networks and best practices
Consultancy for companies, NGOs, International Organisations and public bodies
Constantly facilitating Knowledge transfer to Uganda
Education and training in the field of Knowledge Management
and many more…
Knowledge Management trainings
Trainings on KM are available and planned for open sessions and in house trainings on various aspects in knowledge management.
This will include the following topics (as example):
knowledge management and performance,
knowledge as a key driver to a conducive work place,
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 Kampala Knowledge Week took place in August
The 1st African Knowledge for Development Partnership Meeting was a great success and the main topic of “Knowledge Management in the public sector” was lively discussed. Download here the full Programme of Kampala.Knowledge.Week for further information.
Kampala Knowledge Week addressed companies, organisations, public bodies and individuals, who want to get fit for the Knowledge Economy and who want to co-create better Knowledge Societies in East Africa and the world. The event was inspiring and outstanding.
Kampala Knowledge City
Kampala is the rising and growing capital of Uganda becoming a lead city in Eastern Africa in various thematic fields. Kampala.Knowledge.City is our hub for the Eastern African Knowledge Agenda and together with Lagos.Knowledge.City and Nairobi.Knowledge.City it will pioneer for advanced knowledge societies in Africa as a whole.
