K4DP has launched the School of Knowledge Sciences in December 2020 and we proudly announce that the first Joint Centre for Knowledge Sciences has been established at the International University of Management, Namibia.
The KM Award 2020 Ceremony highlighted the achievements of UNICEF as an International Organisation with its meaningful, strategic, global and integrated KM Approach, specifically reflecting its recently published Global KM Medium-Term Strategy 2021-2022.
The individual KM Award was given to Kimiz Dalkir (photo right), Professor at McGill University, Canada, for her outstanding achievements in academic teaching, research and publishing. Her book “Knowledge Management in Theory and Practice (MIT Press)” is outstanding, inspiring and influencial on a global level. We gratulate the winners of the Award! The KM Award is a programme of Knowledge Management Austria – one of the initiators of K4DP – since 2009.
K4DP aims to include stakeholder groups from all over the world to create, drive and implement the Agenda Knowledge for Development for better knowledge sharing and collaboration, increased competence in knowledge management, and better conditions for individual knowledge work.
National knowledge partnerships have been established to localize the agenda and set local, national and regional initiatives. Communication platforms are established to bring together the K4D community to learn, share, and perform better together.
Agenda for Knowledge Development
The Agenda is aimed at providing a universal knowledge framework offering guiding principles, nurturing the dialogue on knowledge, strengthening global knowledge ecosystems and, ultimately, contributing to
better success in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
Based on the statements of 130 experts and representatives of multi-stakeholder communities, this Agenda has been presented in its current version in April 2017 at the UN Office in Geneva.
School of Knowledge Sciences
The School of Knowledge Sciences provides academic education and training, research, communication and outreach as well as art activities. The global faculty includes world-leading experts and practitioners. The K4D Challenge 2021 will be the flagship programme combining education/training with real action and outreach, grounded in research and collaborating with artists.
The School of Knowledge Sciences is acting in cooperation with academic institutions, some of which are establishing Centres of Knowledge Sciences at their campus.
