Knowledge Management Platform

Connecting the Global Knowledge Community

Austrian Knowledge Partnership

KMA is host of the Austrian Knowledge Partnership, a platform for people, organizations and corporations that are committed to develop a knowledge-based society, that is responsible, high-performing, worth living and sustainable.

The Knowledge Partnership enables the effective cooperation of people, organizations and corporations that are committed to a responsible use of knowledge in society. By sharing knowledge and ideas, attractive, practical and sustainable concepts of knowledge politics are developed and put into practice.

The work of the Knowledge Partnership is future-oriented and reflective, transdisciplinary and internationally connected, non-profit and independent. It is financed by the knowledge partners in a transparent way.
