The overall aims of this Forum are to bring together academics and practitioners in knowledge management and policy makers from a wide range of disciplines and sectors to discuss and analyse important aspects of knowledge management in education and learning systems. The emphasis of the Forum, like earlier ones, will be to blend conceptual/policy issues with concrete case-study experiences based on an open dialog and discussion.
Previous seminars of this kind have taken place in Ottawa, Copenhagen and Tokyo on, respectively, knowledge management in the private sector; knowledge management in the public versus the private sector, and on the role of knowledge management in managing university/industry relationships. The UK Forum will thus be the fourth such event. A major OECD/CERI report entitled, “Knowledge Management in the Learning Society”, was published in 2000.
