    To enhance users’ social embedding within Learning Networks, we propose to establish so called ad hoc transient communities. These communities serve a particular shared goal, exist for a limited period of time, and operate according to specific social exchange policies that foster knowledge sharing. This paper introduces the concept behind this type of communities and describes the conditions and policies needed to encourage knowledge sharing.
