Bioversity International, the CGIAR ICT-KM program, FAO, IFAD and WFP are jointly organizing a 3-day event entitled Knowledge “Share Fair” for Agricultural Development and Food Security to be held at FAO Headquarters on 20 – 22 January 2009.
See the newly launched (but provisional) Knowledge “Share Fair” website
AIMS AND TOPICS
The Share Fair will provide an interactive experience, allowing staff and our Rome-based constituents to:
- share and learn from each others good practices;
- experiment with tools and methodologies for knowledge sharing;
- create linkages and networks for future collaboration between the organizations;
- develop ideas to support and enhance knowledge sharing within and across our organizations.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The purpose of the event is to showcase examples of good knowledge sharing practices in the field of agricultural development and food security. Specifically, we have structured the Fair to allow staff to learn from each other how knowledge sharing practices, methods and tools have enhanced their work and made their project(s) more successful and effective.
The Share Fair will showcase examples of knowledge sharing strategies, policies and operational practices using case studies, anecdotes, and face-to-face events.
We would like you to tell us a story about how you and/or your project dealt with one – or more – of the contexts (see Section 2 and 3 of the Call for Proposals).
All projects will be refereed through a peer review process. Potential contributors are strongly encouraged to submit their proposals no later than 15 October, 2008. You can submit your proposals via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that this is a provisional Web page intended to advertise the Call for Proposals of the Knowledge Share Fair prior to the publication of the official Web site
