Make Your Experiences Count. They Can Change the World.
LET’S BRING ALL OF OUR KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCES TOGETHER.
TOGETHER WE KNOW MORE. TOGETHER WE ACHIEVE MORE. TOGETHER WE DO BETTER.
KNOW-HOW3000 strives to help improve the work and impact of HORIZONT3000 projects through Knowledge Management. We believe in the power of sharing knowledge and experiences and making it accessible for all of our stakeholders.
We offer Knowledge Management Tools to our Partner Organisations. That way, we try to make capacity strengthening and knowledge exchange among them possible. This platform is one of the tools that help us to reach that goal.
Founded in 2007 as a new programme of HORIZONT3000, KNOW-HOW3000 has come to be a strong network of about 600 members across the globe. Together we have created a place where people gather to learn, share and build.
If you have an account on the KNOW-HOW3000 platform, please make sure you are logged in. Why? You will be able to access restricted content and features that are only available for our KNOW-HOW3000 community members. Get access to our Files & Downloads, Communities of Practice, Member Search, News Area and depending on whether you are a Techical Advisor, H3 Staff or Returnee, you can accordingly enter the TA-Area, the HORIZONT3000 Intranet or the Area for H3 Friends.
The experience capitalisation methods the KNOW-HOW3000 stakeholders work with support the documentation and sharing of your organisation’s learning processes and therefore help you to work more efficiently. At the same time they help others by making your lessons learnt available to them.
You can dive right into the stories of the HORIZONT3000 Partner Organisations about good practices and learnings from failure. Whether your project deals with Rural Development, Human Rights or Education – we are sure there is a valuable experience waiting for you to be discovered.
Our Experience of the Month comes from our Partner Organisations in Nicaragua BlueEnergy (bE) and Bluefields Indian and Caribbean University (BICU). It is about Climate Change and how families and communities prepare for it with participation and empowerment. The experience got also featured in our News section with additional material you have to see. Click here and read the story. Interested in the results of the capitalisation of their experience?
The main purpose of the KNOW-HOW3000 internet platform is to document, visualise and make the most relevant documents created in the scope of HORIZONT3000 projects available and easily accessible for the members of our community – above all for our Technical Advisors as well as Programme and Sector Coordinators. Consequently, it represents a sustainable backup for the knowledge products resulting from our projects.
It should serve our Technical Advisors as a tool to overcome challenges, find solutions and inspirations for their projects and exchange knowledge and experiences with others throughout their assignments. The platform also works as a hub for all the Knowledge Management activities that can be supported by IT solutions.

Instead of reinventing the wheel, why not take a look and see what others have been doing and how it went for them?
Find experiences, systematisations, evaluations, manuals & handbooks, publications & studies and infos on sector strategies here. Save time and effort by using documents, guides and templates that the KNOW-HOW3000 members have already created for the different sectors.
We have put in place a variety of tools to assure the quality of knowledge management and capacity development within and between our Partner Organisations.
Analysing experiences in order to generate know-how and document learnings is what Experience Capitalisation is all about. Systematisation, Change Stories, After Action Reviews and Storytelling are a few methods to reveal issues that are often overlooked.
Face-to-face-meetings provide a great learning opportunity, while sharing and discussing specific topics, getting to know the people behind them and building strong relationships within our network.
In order to develop and strengthen specific capacities we facilitate trainings for our Partner Organisations. This has proven to enhance structures and procedures within the organisations.
Thanks to exchange visits our members work closer together, since Partner Organisations meet and learn from each other and their projects and methods applied.
When in need of a certain expertise, Partner Organisations have the option to invite a Technical Advisor for a short-term mission.
Our Communities of Practice interact regularly to enable stronger networks as well as structured exchange and learning processes.
Our Toolbox for Technical Advisors provides a set of tools, documents and templates for Organisational Development and aims at improving the processes within organisations.
The KNOW-HOW3000 platform is the digital space for knowledge exchange between all of our network members and for documenting, visualising and backing up the knowledge products resulting from HORIZONT3000 projects.
