  • Web&UI Development / UNESCO Creativity Knowledge Management System
    Web&UI Development / UNESCO Creativity Knowledge Management SystemAs soon as I joined the UNESCO's Division for Diversity of Cultural Expression, I passed under review their communication and knowledge management platforms and prepared a report on the limits of the tools they were using and on the interventions to be taken within the opportunities and the challenges of working within the organisation's global standards, which were at that time, under a slow and under-funded restructuring process.
