Program objectives :
Collective intelligence is defined as the capacity of human communities to cooperate intellectually in creation, innovation and invention (Levy, 2015). Collective intelligence has received some attention from practitioners and has been identified as an area requiring research attention. To achieve the above-mentioned purposes, the following objectives are set:
– Develop methods, techniques and strategies for collective intelligence
– Promote debats about current and future research directions in collective intelligence

Key areas of focus :
– Knowledge hiding
– Knowledge transfer
– Knowledge creation
– Cognitive science
– Collaborative platforms
– Semantic Web

Program team :
– Bisan Abdulkader, UM6P School of Collective Intelligence, Morocco
– Manlio Del Giudice, University of Rome “Link Campus”, Italy
– Abdelati Hakmaoui, CIEMS, Morocco
– Pierre Lévy, Former head of Canada Research Chair on Collective Intelligence (U. Ottawa), Canada
– Yves Marleau, CEO, Cogniva, Canada
– Klaus Solberg Söilen, Halmstad University, Sweden
– Mourad Oubrich, CIEMS, Morocco

Partner Journals :
– Journal of Knowledge Management (Emerald, Impact factor : 4.488)
– Journal of Intellectual Capital (Emerald, Impact factor : 3.744)

Current Project :
One of the projects of collective intelligence research program is about Knowledge hiding and its implications on the organisation.
Context:
Companies have faced increased environmental uncertainty and increasingly there is a need to compete in the global economy and to monitor and understand their environment more accurately for survival and success. KH is problematic because it prevents organizations from realizing the benefits and performance. Consequently, management must develop strategies to reduce it. Increased understanding of KH behavior will help organizations to develop appropriate HRM practices, design systems and processes facilitating knowledge sharing.
Project Title:
A project entitled: “Organizational factors influencing knowledge hiding in organizations: Multi Country study ” is conducted to understand KH and how we manage it.
