The following comic is telling also about the core business of our Organization.

Our Vision of knolwedge for development:

In the 21st century, a new society is emerging in which knowledge development is fundamental for sustainable development. Efficient utilisation of existing and newly generated knowledge can create comprehensive wealth for nations in the form of better health, education, infrastructure, trade, development and social well-being. Knowledge goals arise from the need to specify the actions that are to be performed; in other words, from the need to make actions operational. New knowledge development trends, such as knowledge for development and knowledge transfer, are emerging to enhance knowledge and capacities in developing countries in the areas of health, education, infrastructure, trade, development, and interrelated issues, including through policy design. In addition, new technologies are opening tremendous possibilities for creating, packaging, testing and sharing information, knowledge, and hence mutual understanding, in today’s knowledge societies. Knowledge societies should promote, facilitate and support the way each country effectively deals with knowledge for development and its deployment in all sectors like health, education, infrastructure, trade, development and social well-being.
