Technical University (LITHUANIA)
The concept of interaction between systems of research, teaching, training, consultancy and practical business in the context of the activation of scientific and technological progress and the creation of knowledge based economy is described. Interaction systems are defined as an important part of the infrastructure for scientific and technological progress and for the knowledge based economy creation.
Particularly important areas of interaction are regarded in the interaction between systems where:
-various types of intellectual products are developed and new knowledge is generated,
-there is potential for creation and accumulation of new knowledge,
-newly created knowledge and various kinds of intellectual products are completed and transformed into items or services of practical use.
In the most common case mentioned systems as a whole include processes of scientific research, teaching, training and consultancy business, as well as activities of practical production. It can be suggested that interaction between these particular systems embracing such activities must be given a priority attention, since the combination of these activities reflect upon whole a complex of activities, offering a strong commonality. It is clear that orientation towards commonality of such complex of activities shows in interconnection, of the three elements including:
-research activities creating new knowledge,
-training, studies and consultancy activities, preparing human resources required both to generate new knowledge, and dissemination of new knowledge and its practical use,
- manufacturing business as an activity involving the process transformation of new knowledge into new material products, in which actually new products intended for consumption are created.
To implement interaction between research, teaching, training, consultancy and practical productive business the international practice widely applies various organizational forms. Among these forms very popular are the innovation centers, business incubators, parks of science and technology, various industrial units, techno-poles, clusters, as well as all of these organizations and networks in various combinations: dissemination of these organizational forms is done on a huge scale, and the rich opportunities to be able to invigorate scientific and technological progress and increase economic efficiency.
The main problems of such interaction in the context of globalization and internationalization processes are analyzed. In the sphere of the systems of interaction of research, teaching, training, consultancy and practical manufacturing business, some multifaceted and somewhat contradictory trends occur, the most important trends are described.
Interaction between systems of research, teaching, training, consultancy and practical business in the context of the activation of scientific and technological progress and the creation of knowledge based economy is characterized as the case of Lithuania .
