How has international literature influenced post-apartheid policies in higher education and training and in science and technology? The "Mode Two" knowledge debate centres around new knowledge production beyond existing academic disciplines and the insular traditional higher education institution. This new approach originates in the synergy and cross-fertilisation in the interstices between established disciplines, and in the interaction of higher education scientists with government, business and civil society.
