Knowledge Transfer for Engagement and Inclusion: Nonprofit Organizations Striving forMission Fulfillment


  • Katalin Dobrai

    (Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Pécs, Hungary)


The organizations analyzed in the paper, are public serving nonprofit organizations. Empirical evidence is based on the (earlier and present) research of the research team of the University of Pécs Hungary. Earlier research involves the European Capital of Culture project, the recent research, interviews in connection with professionalization of the nonprofit sector. Both the results of the EU surveys and the author’s own research show that education and training opportunities for volunteers regularly depend on the tasks that have to be carried out by them. Training is basically provided by the nonprofit organization where the volunteer helps with his skills and knowledge, and also works as a knowledge transferor between nonprofit organization and public.
