For the implementation of projects WGC will collaborate with all relevant parties. For the applied scientifical projects these are the universities and knowledge institutes, the members of the Learning Table among others. Within these project consortia there is also room for the consultancies to safeguard practical application. That also holds for practice development projects, in which focus is on the consultancies and knowledge institutes. Being a non—profit knowledge organization, WGC adds additional value by stimulating the development of knowledge, by connecting knowledge, and by disseminating the added value.
Collaboration with other knowledge programmes, such as Knowledge for Climate, Water and Space (CURNET) and VerDus, is obvious. In many of these programmes the governance becomes more and more important, even though this was not obvious at the start. This way, WGC becomes a partnership and a network organization, and not a closed shop. New partners should be allowed to join if it strengthens WGC. Partners must make good agreements and draw up rules and criteria in advance, in order to make sure that, in terms of quality, the strongest knowledge coalitions are being formed in which a multidisciplinary approach and steering on demand are key.
