     Abstract Since knowledge creation is vital to enhance the competitive performance of modern organization, this article thus presents processes and activities for constructing knowledge at the project level by integrating the concepts of project management and knowledge management. In addition, based on the teamwork at project-level, a number of new knowledge can be continuously generated. The micro hydropower project in the Chi-river Basin of Thailand for developing renewable energy based on community participation in rural area was selected for this study. Using documentary and project activity analyses, we found that, to accomplish the project goal, an integration of multi-disciplinary knowledge has to be employed for implementing the new knowledge using knowledge-boundary crossing processes. According to the project activities, the project team was divided into parties based on the individual knowledge and skill. Using the method of in-depth interview together with participant observation for a period of six months, it was illustrated that the new knowledge was created based on the activities of each party. In each step of activity, the new knowledge, especially embedded knowledge, increased linearly. The new knowledge obtained from one stage was used in the next stage of work. This initiated the embedded knowledge required to continuously develop the new knowledge in the next stage. The new knowledge in each stage was then adopted for completing the tasks. In addition, the process of knowledge creation in each project activities employed either technical or sophistical approaches to explain the leverage of knowledge. The study indicates that the practical working activity together with the project teamwork can be utilized as an important tool for knowledge creation.
