GAUSS Institute - Foundation for New Technologies, Innovations and Knowledge Transfer
The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
The role of the foundation is through development and application of new technologies, innovations and knowledge transfer to contribute toward the establishment of knowledge-based society in the region.
A knowledge-based society is an innovation and lifelong learning society, which possesses a community of scholars, researchers, engineers, technicians, research networks, and firms engaged in research and in the production of high-technology goods and service provision. It forms a national innovation-production system, which is integrated into international networks of knowledge production, diffusion, utilization, and protection. Its communication and information technology tools make vast amounts of human knowledge easily accessible. Knowledge is used to empower and enrich people culturally and materially, and to build an eco-friendly sustainable society.
