Research on Risk of Knowledge Sharing Based on Risk Assessment and Energy Analysis

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 219)


This paper analyzes the related literature at home and abroad, dividing different risk types and its origin of knowledge sharing, focus on the risk assessment of knowledge sharing, discusses the risk energy model of knowledge sharing. Research shows that the risk of knowledge sharing is one kind phenomenon which generates, exist and change in the exchange process of material and energy between system and environment. The source of knowledge sharing risk can be summed up in the fuzziness of knowledge, the knowledge dependence of information asymmetry and opportunism and core competence. Only the benefits outweighed the losses, the knowledge sharing will occur. When the energy of cumulative risk reaches a certain level, risk will happen; inevitable produces a certain loss, even influence the normal operation of knowledge cooperation.
