Higher education, a leading research sector in the world, is facing the challenges that require new innovation approach to withstand and to further develop the innovative methods of technology transfer to support the modern competitive economies. In this sense the universities of today form the basis that combines applied knowledge with industrial and regional growth to further dynamic cooperation between educational, business and government sectors.
Counteraction between a modern university, government and business was described by several authors in USA and Europe. Furthermore, the model (Triple-helix, H. Etzkovitz) is developed to define the regional transformation mechanisms applied to build up innovational regions, whose economic growth is propelled by knowledge. Initiation of the triad university-industry-government may be considered a key factor of regional development. Although universities keep their traditional functions of knowledge accumulation and dissemination, research and socialisation, they also play an important role as centers for technology transfer.
Thus, the unique educational, research and economic status of a university enterprise in which the new and traditional roles serve to enhance each other, is putting the university into a central position under regional economy.
