The Role of Universities by Accelerating the Transfer Process of Societies Into Knowledge Society
The terminology "Knowing-Doing-Gap" expresses the increasing gap between what we know and what we really
do and implement. This huge wasting of knowledge is called "the Knowing-Doing-Gap". The role of universities to
minimize this gap was discussed from many scientists from both micro and macro perspective. Some scientists focusing in
their research on a managerial approach in dealing with new knowledge, other researchers focused on the problem at the
macro level introduced. In this study the author explores both approaches, the micro and the macro one in order to deal with
this problem "the Knowing-Doing-Gap" from many perspectives. The result of this research shows that both approaches
complement each other in solving this problem and minimize this gap.
