The new technological and information revolution and the future of higher education
The intensity and the consequences of transformations of the educational system and particularly of higher education’s depend on a number of factors. These include global, regional and national political, demographic, socio-economic, technological and cultural changes. They depend also on the development level and the structure of the given economies.
In the present era of global transition to knowledge based societies and economies higher
education is playing a centrally important role much beyond the educational system on
graduate, post graduate level and lifelong learning-also in Hungary. The strategies for its
development should include the triangle of its task: educate, research and innovate.
