Can Knowledge be Distributed? The Dynamics of Knowledge in Interdisciplinary Alliances
The DK project is one of the key DKRC projects and is funded by NSF under its Knowledge and Distributed Intelligence (KDI) initiative. It was most active during 2003-06.
The research focuses on how members of six AT teams (cosmology, environmental hydrology, molecular biology, chemical engineering, nanomaterials and scientific instrumentation) exchange and create knowledge across disciplinary boundaries, and how technologies support these processes. This study adds to the understanding of fundamental knowledge processes in a leading-edge research and high-performance computing environment.
