Formal Knowledge Networks: A Study of Canadian Experiences

By Howard C. Clark on October 5, 2001
Formal Knowledge Networks examines Canada's evolving knowledge networks, providing a better understanding of what formal knowledge networks are and how they differ from more traditional information and advocacy networks. The resulting model includes a definition of formal knowledge networks and basic criteria for their effective operation. The book concludes with a list of suggested actions and case studies of several formal knowledge networks, including Canada's National Centres of Excellence, the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, Canadian Policy Research Networks, and selected nongovernmental organizations and international development networks.
