Second FAO/ICT-KM Knowledge Sharing Workshop- Rome, Italy, 7-9 October 2008

FAO and the ICT-KM Program of the CGIAR are holding their second knowledge sharing workshop at Bioversity International Headquarters just outside of downtown Rome. The face-to-face portion of the workshop follows a four-week online phase in which participants were encouraged to explore knowledge-sharing challenges and opportunities, discuss and experiment with possible ways to make the most of face-to-face and virtual collaboration, and explore the crucial role of networks in research projects and institutional settings. As part of phase 2 activities, we will work in teams to understand more in-depth those of the participants’ specific interests that were identified during phase 1. We will also design activities that participants can then implement and practice using the tools and methods explored in Phase 1.
