Knowledge Exchange

Industry Centers of Excellence

Analysts in the Knowledge Exchange Division (KED) collaborate closely with their CoBank colleagues in six Centers of Excellence (CoEs), one for each of the major rural industries served by CoBank. Each group consists of CoBank’s industry specialists and is responsible for identifying key strategic challenges, risks and opportunities unfolding within its industry. These groups work in collaboration with KED’s analysts to identify and assess industry trends, structural change, or new policy initiatives.
