knowledge broker

The function of a broker is that of a broker who mediates between several instances. A knowledge broker is thus a "knowledge intermediary". It can be a person or an organization that mediates between the owner of the knowledge and organizations and companies that are interested in the knowledge. A knowledge broker or content broker

knows ways to place the knowledge in the market and find interested parties for it. Owners of the knowledge are researchers, developers, system integrators or authors, i.e. people who have the knowledge. They make the knowledge available to interested parties for their own purposes via the knowledge broker. They offer it to companies, institutions, or individuals so that they can make their Web sites

more informative. The task of knowledge brokers is therefore knowledge transfer.

They make sure that knowledge gets from the knowledge source to where it is needed and demanded. Furthermore, they provide access to the knowledge, the linking of different knowledge pools and the implementation of the knowledge into the new website or presentation. Furthermore, knowledge brokers negotiate the usage agreements and prices and control their compliance.
