Abstract

Europe is introduced as a knowledge society, with an emphasis on the strategic role of European Commission Framework Programmes as central to the “European Project.” This introduces changes to traditional nationally based and discipline oriented approaches to the roles of universities, corporations, and governments, which are illustrated through the case of the Centre for Working Life research at Kingston Business School. It is argued that discussion of the new production of knowledge needs to be complemented by encouragement of participative action research.
