We have a problem. We live in a knowledge economy and a knowledge society, but there is no agreement on how to value knowledge, including intangibles and intellectual property. We are accustomed to dealing with explicit knowledge, which can be handled by computers, but the realisation has grown that what we need is implicit and, in particular, tacit knowledge. Often we only appreciate it when it has gone. It is not enough to demonstrate competence: we need skill, with the capacity for reflection. There are particular problems with the universal technologies of computers. Selling to one customer can terminate the activities of all other customers. The presentation introduces practical examples of knowledge exchange in Further and Higher Education, in the UK, Sweden, Norway and Lithuania. Keywords: innovation systems, knowledge, knowledge exchange, skill, tacit knowledge, universal technologies
