Abstract

This paper sets focus on the relationship between knowledge production in universities and its application in everyday life. The point of departure is the linear model of knowledge production placing the university in the dominating role. This position is challenged by taking on a systems perspective where learning takes place across tradition boundaries. Universities, corporations, and governmental institutions integrate in the same knowledge production chain, blurring the whole concept of understanding universities as the linking pin in knowledge creation.
