    The Network for Business Sustainability (NBS, nbs.net) is building resources to help academics co-create knowledge with practitioners.

    Our premise: Intractable sustainability issues require problem solvers to come together. Practitioners and researchers can bring complementary insights to co-create knowledge for sustainability impact.

    Despite its promise, knowledge co-creation with practitioners is neither easy nor incentivized. NBS seeks to help researchers navigate the path of co-creation more easily - by learning from each other and sharing challenges and advice.

    Last March, NBS asked the academic community what resources would be helpful. Since then, we've been working to create these resources. Researchers focused on topics outside sustainability may find them useful as well.

    Resources include:
