[The Role of „Fourth Generation” Universities in Knowledge Management]

Nowadays in case of the operation of universities there is a clear advancement towards a common pattern. Besides the enhancement of local economy the local social commitment is a definitive part of the mid- and long-term strategies of higher education institutions. Many successful examples prove that these institutions are able to foster the level of economic development in certain regions. The realization of this can happen with the collective presence of three activities. Excellent education, effective research and embedment in the local economy are all necessary activities. The main requirement of efficient knowledge management is that the institutions should possess outstanding IT- infrastructures, databases, create professional forums that can enhance the flow of knowledge. Thus knowledge management can be considered as a tool for increasing the flow of information. The study has two goals: It attempts to identify the characteristics of „fourth generation” universities and examines the role of modern universities in activities that can enhance knowledge-transfer.
