Collaborative Knowledge Creation in Development Networks: Lessons Learned from a Transnational Programme
The paper is presenting some considerations on how knowledge is collaboratively created and documented in social networks within International Development Cooperation (IDC) settings, and on the importance of collaborative knowledge production and exploitation within these networks. We argue that knowledge exchange and creation is one of the main added values of networking activities of IDC in the network society, and we advocate for networking to be considered a fundamental component of IDC interventions. A specific case study is presented, showing the impact of collaborative knowledge building on a Europe-Latin America cooperation programme of the European Commission.
