Abstract
In the era of "Knowledge Societies" innovations and expertise are often called the most important resources (Daniel Bell; Peter Drucker) especially for organizations, and the knowledge worker becomes a famous object of sociological research (e.g. Helmut Willke). In theories of organizational learning (e.g. Agyris and Schön) the individual actor and his attitudes aren't in the focus of interest. Here we will present a qualitative research on practitioners from different professions and their use of and attitudes towards scientific knowledge and their interaction with research establishments or scientists. We interviewed more than 50 professionals with different academic backgrounds in different organizations. They were asked, how they search for and use scientific information or knowledge, how they proof it and how important this information input is for their personal work and for the organization. Two major findings are: (1) a specific science orientation - attitude among most interview partners and (2) a change from educated knowledge to informed knowledge (Nina Degele).
