From the University of Rijeka Strategy 2007-2013:

A key role of the higher education system and the research & innovation in the development of economy becomes more and more recognizable. Due to that, long-term higher education policy should reach two goals: (i) strengthen the system of higher education and research, its efficiency and correlation of the teaching and research components and (ii) strengthen the correlation between the system and the community, especially in those segments which form a knowledge-based society.
