English term or phrase: knowledge environment
(kunskapsmiljö in Swedish)

This is of course using the term to describe an environment where ideas and information are freely exchanged, such as in a incubator or university.

But "knowledge environment"seems a bit stilted of a phrase - any suggestions for a different more natural sounding term for it?
