All areas of vocational education and training have to draw on existing knowledge. The transfer of knowledge and findings is a prerequisite for making new discoveries and applying innovative concepts in practice. The "Product Marketing, Dissemination of Specialist Information, Information Systems" Section at Germany's Federal Institute for Vocational Training (BIBB) is currently working with the Communications and Information System for Vocational Training (KIBB) project on developing a knowledge map that systematically taps and describes available knowledge and, in doing so, supports the user-oriented transfer of research findings and knowledge.
