Gestión de conocimiento inter-organizacional : el caso de las nanotecnologías

Abstract : The thesis deals with knowledge management processes and associated practices in interorganizational contexts. With an insight of intellectual craftsmanship, we focus on the case study of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NST) that involves a wide diversity of participant organizations and knowledge fields. By studying three specific contexts –a Colombian network of research groups, a European collaborative project, and a laboratory of materials belonging to a micro and nanotechnology cluster of Grenoble (France); we present four main theoretical contributions through a knowing in practice approach: 1) A description of relationships between interorganizational knowledge management practices and policies that foster cross-institutional agreements, 2) An insight of proximity as a point of convergence and divergence in boundary-related knowledge management, 3) An understanding of temporality and anchor points related to cross-organizational relationships, and 4) The dynamics of mediation of the socio-technical collectives. On the other hand, we put forward an approach to the concept of practice as managerial space, which allows to account for differences in the temporary nature of relationships and assess effective mediation of available tools for supporting knowledge management processes.
