Looking for existing models for institutes and governance models

Calgary - Knowledge Sciences Institute

Also, I'm not sure about this conference, but I found it while searching on Calgary's website for more information about the insitute, which doesn't seem to be very active these days. Here's the schedule for the conference; it may or may not be applicable to what we're doing, but at least it's another model for looking at things. The site is active and has information about this last conference and speakers as well as links to previous conferences.

Ohio Employee Ownership Center

Brookings Center

The Institute for Knowledge and Innovation at George Washington University

Stanford Research Institute


Penn State - Center for Enterprise Architecture

Kent State - Institute of Applied Linguistics
