Knowledge Management @ Kent State University

Symposium

In September 2013, Kent State University will host the inaugural Knowledge Sciences Symposium in Ohio and Washington, D.C. The purpose of the Symposium is to bring together knowledge management thought leaders from businesses and organizations, technology sector, academia, civil society organizations and the broader workforce to assist the University in designing a Knowledge Sciences Center. 

The Center will provide advice, support collaborative engagement opportunities, advocate for knowledge issues, support and promote research and development, and provide opportunities for the workforce to prepare for the transition to a knowledge economy.  In short, we expect the Knowledge Sciences Center to play a role similar to that of an agricultural extension service as the country built out its robust agricultural economy in the 19th century.  The Center will accept challenges and problems as well as convene teams of experts to develop affordable and effective solutions for all kinds and sizes of organizations and communities. 

The Center will have both a physical and a virtual presence.  The physical home of the Knowledge Science Center will be on the Kent State University Kent Campus in Kent, Ohio.  The virtual Center will be open to everyone, anywhere.  At the present, the Knowledge Sciences Center is a vision waiting to be defined. The University seeks the advice of invited delegates to advise on the development of the Center.  Their advice will help to ensure the design of the Center meets the needs of stakeholders.  Together, we will create a vision and blueprint for launching and growing the Center.
The Knowledge Sciences Symposium will be held in two locations to facilitate the participation of all delegates.  The first session will be held Sept. 4 and 5 at the University Center on the Kent State University Stark Campus in Canton, Ohio.  The second session will be held Sept. 10 and 11 at the Department of Transportation Library at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C.  Physical and remote participation will be supported for both sessions.  The Symposium is free and open to all thanks to the generous support of our partners, the Department of Transportation and the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company.
