- In the age of fast increasing competition, policy-makers as well as scholars are looking for new concepts by identifying an indigenous potential for local development. As a result a knowledge centre strategy comes to the fore as a new alternative for local development strategy. Under this strategy, particular significance has to be attributed the role of universities and research centers on the local level. Especially the university may be the only innovation center for local development in peripheral region.
