Creation and Communication of Environmental Knowledge within and between Communities of Practice

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch


    Building on knowledge management discussions this chapter analyses how environmental knowledge is created and transferred within and among enterprises. Communication processes in environmental management are conceived as transfer and translation of knowledge between different communities of practices and knowledge systems, each characterised by specific bounded cognition. Taking this theoretical approach, this chapter analyses specific problems related to the development and implementation of a sciencebased information system to assess and document the environmental properties of chemical.
