Efficient and effective Knowledge Acquisition and Sharing are of vital importance for large organizations. Complex human and technical aspects make them a complex issue. In this talk I will describe and discuss requirements, tools and methodologies for Knowledge Acquisition and Sharing in large organizations. I will use examples from the aerospace and automotive domain to describe and discuss real world requirements, including those related to human factors and technical issues. Then I will describe techniques from the field of Human Language Technologies and the Semantic Web that can be used for addressing those requirements. I will then present examples of real world applications developed in the aerospace domain. Finally, I will discuss some future trends.
