summary:Under the IST Programme, the European Commission is attempting to build community around the subject of Knowledge Management Made in Europe. In the past four years almost 40 research and development, and take-up projects have been launched which are tackling various pieces of the organisational knowledge management puzzle. In addition, the cluster project known as the European Knowledge Management Forum is attempting to build a sustainable network of knowledge management theoreticians and practitioners who are interested in Europe´s journey into the knowledge economy, and what knowledge management methods and tools can contribute to this journey. The Forum is also attempting to support commonality in KM terminology, application and implementation in Europe. This paper gives an overview of the current work which has taken place under the IST Programme during Framework Programme V, and attempts to highlight some interesting research themes on the way to Framework Programme VI.
