Information and Communication Technology (ICTs) as a Tool for Innovation
ICTs and university development are extensive fields, and it is not possible to address all aspects in this paper but only what has been found to be of greatest current importance. When applying ICT to university development, it has been found that the most important challenges that institutions are currently facing are the responsibilities that have been transferred to them through recent decentralization. In this paper this aspect will thus be deliberately focused upon along with the ICTs that are of most relevant to these institutions meeting their new responsibilities.
