Abstract: The growing urbanization process and the core characteristics of the information society have situated cities and their knowledge management capacities at the center of scientific and policy-making debate. The current project conceptualizes knowledge as a policy resource and focuses on the theoretical framework of policy transfer and combines it with theoretical insights on knowledge management. In light of the historic momentum knowledge management and cities are experiencing, specific and formally dedicated cities networks have been established with the purpose to structure knowledge exchange among urban communities. The current project sets out as research problem the importance of these networks for local governments interests; it undertakes this endeavor by identifying a recently established cities network to explore the production of learning and policy knowledge exchange through a specific empirical case: the City Protocol.
