YorkU’s KM Expo 2010 – there’s still time to register!

Join us on Tuesday, March 2, 2010, when York University’s KM Unit will be hosting their third annual KM Expo at Le Parc in Richmond Hill.

The theme of the YorkU KM Expo 2010 is “Bridging Cultural Boundaries: Push, Pull and Co-Production of Knowledge” and we will explore the unique cultural boundaries that exist between university researchers, graduate students and their non-academic research collaborators from community organizations and government agencies. Featuring plenary, breakout, unconference and networking sessions, the KM Expo will explore how the push, pull and co-production methods of KM partnerships help universities and their partners become ‘boundary organizations’*.

Date: Tuesday, March 2

Time: 8:00 am to 5:30 pm

Location: Le Parc Conference and Banquet Centre
8432 Leslie St (Highway 7 and Leslie), Richmond Hill
