Strengthening academic research and education has been on the Agenda Knowledge for Development since its first launch in 2016. However, it took until 25 February 2020, where at a K4DP Meeting, taking place at KCA University in Nairobi, Kenya, the idea of a School of Knowledge Science as an initiative of K4DP was first articulated. Knowledge Sciences require global collaboration and multi-stakeholder partnership, and from there the idea grew. A team of proponents has been formed to articulate the rationale, propose a structure, a programme and find the partners to implement it. Dr. Andreas Brandner is chairing the School of Knowledge Sciences. More details will follow soon.
