In the Vietnamese science community, knowledge production and sharing are
still limited. Based on intensive field work in South Vietnam, the author
investigates how organizations operating in the field of water research
understand and practice knowledge management. The national science policy,
culture and tradition, international collaboration and local market forces
all contribute to the current conditions of knowledge exchange in Vietnam.
It is shown that the concentration of organizations in „knowledge
clusters“ could possibly increase the innovative capacity of R&D which
represents a key driving force in the country’s ambitious plans of
becoming a middle income country.
