About Knowledge Hub
The Hub is a platform to share ideas, cases and concepts that bridge the gap between academia and the real world. Think about it as the real world textbook, a platform rich with experiences. Many fields including medicine and psychiatry suffer from ‘closet’ ideas. Many brilliant solutions, the so called tacit knowledge, is embedded in the brains of people that do not have the platform to express them or at least reach a wider audience. The Hub is a device to unlock this knowledge and share it with the wider world. The Hub gives you an opportunity to make a difference.
