    The potential of universities has an indisputable influence on the whole regional environment. In general, this potential can be seen on 3 basic levels: (1) influence on the innovative entrepreneurial environment, (2) influence on the formation of human capital in the region, (3) influence on a further social and cultural development of the region. This contribution analyses the aspects of the universities' influence on the entrepreneurial environment. At present, this subject is being discussed at the national level. Moreover, Slovak universities themselves by their activities focus on different forms of co-operation. The co-operation between universities and enterprises is studied specifically for the Trnava Self-Governing Region which represents in the regional typology one of the economic core regions. As knowledge interactions and their distribution into the entrepreneurial environment behave differently in individual region types, they can be studied objectively only under concrete conditions. The analysis of the present state co-operation between universities and enterprises and the identification of barriers to knowledge distribution from universities into the entrepreneurial environment in the Trnava Self-Governing Region were the main objectives of the survey conducted in the second half of 2012.
