Forum for Global Knowledge Sharing (Knowledge Forum) is a specialised, interdisciplinary global forum. It deals with science, technology and economy interface. It aims at providing a platform for scholars belonging to different institutions, universities, countries and disciplines to interact, exchange their research findings and undertake joint research studies. It is designed for persons who have been contributing to R&D and publishing their research findings in professional journals. Its registered office is housed at the Institute for Human Development (IHD), New Delhi. However, its members and office bearers are from various institutions and countries (see the list of Governing Council Members) and function from their respective institution. Knowledge Forum was registered on August 25, 2005. We regularly hold annual conferences where the members present their research papers, share research findings with other members and interact. Knowledge Forum annual international conferences have been well attended and the papers have been of high quality.

At present, there is no inter-disciplinary forum for persons belonging to different disciplines like business schools, economics, basic sciences and technology to interact, collaborate and share their knowledge on the problems involved in technology creation and transfer, and other issues relating to global business. It was felt that in the current era of globalisation and fast technological change the creation of such a forum is vital.

Economists have been working on themes relating to technology creation and transfer without having an in-depth knowledge of science and technology. Likewise, technologists have also been working on these themes without much or any knowledge of their economic viability. Therefore, some of us felt the vital need for a forum where technologists and social scientists could meet and interact. The membership to the Forum is open to all scholars who have been publishing in refereed professional journals.

The most important part of our website is the folder on “Research Papers”. All the registered members are allowed to submit their research papers. The submitted papers are refereed (peer-reviewed) and the accepted papers are uploaded on the website. Placing the paper on our website does not prevent the authors from publishing it in any journal. These are considered similar to working papers and not as publications.  We have now about 250 research papers on the website. eSocialSciences has also been giving wide publicity to our papers and programmes. In addition to research papers, we also have folders on conference papers where presentations by non-members are also placed and one on Commentaries wherein members share important developments in science, technology, economy and research methodology. We also have a folder on Books where our publications are listed with abstracts.
