Objectives


The doctoral school (set of doctoral seminars) is organis
ed as a part of larger effort to facilitate the
development of the Knowledge Economy (KE) in Lithuania. The aim of this course is to acquaint doctoral
students with the Ideas of Knowledge Economy and Knowledge Management (KM) and to encourage
them to engag
e in the knowledge economy research in their dissertation and future research work.


The Seminar will introduce students to the main ideas, concepts, debates and issues of the Learning /
Knowledge Economy, discuss the role of government, industry and u
niversities in developing knowledge
economies, teach to appreciate different forms of knowledge and their economic implications. How the
issues of knowledge economy, explicitly or implicitly, could be addressed in your dissertation work will
also be discus
sed.


In addition, doctoral students will learn about western practices of dissertation work (what do Ph.D.
students do and how), currently dominant research programmes in the West (what are the most popular
research themes and questions). Some time will b
e spent to discuss the importance of research process,
environment (not only content), role of the theory and empirical data, structure and content of a Ph.D.
proposal/plan. Doctoral students will have opportunity to familiarise themselves with about 20 di
fferent
doctoral dissertations prepared and defended in the Nordic and other European Countries.


Course Format


Guest lectures by Professor Bengt Aake Lundvall and Modestas Gelbuda, discussions and possibly one
Ph.D. project presentation (voluntary)
. The seminar program is enclosed separately.
