Expectations and Knowledge Sharing By Stakeholders In A Bioproducts Community of Practice: An Exploratory Study

The Communities of Practice (CoP) are informal groups of individuals with common interests who come together to share experiences, discuss, and im-prove a given practice. This work aims to evaluate the perception of knowledge sharing in a community of practices in bioproducts by its partici-pants and their expectations regarding added value, information and availa-ble resources/activities, and shared materials. A questionnaire disseminated by CoP and social networks was developed be-tween December 2020 and February 2021. Forty-three responses were col-lected. Most participants were female (67.4%), with a mean age of 32 years (SD = 9.1 years), and they had a degree (39.5%). Most participants have a very positive perception of knowledge sharing through a community of prac-tice in bioproducts. Participants believe it is an added value to belong to a CoP due to the exchange of information and experiences and would like in-formation on industry trends, scientific events, and innovations to be availa-ble. These results will make it possible to promote knowledge sharing at the CoP, adjusting the information, resources, and materials available there, to the expectations and preferences of the participants.
