Abstract

Some  universities in  Central and Eastern Europe are facing a crisis of identity.  Academic institutions have for centuries   developed  independence,  liberal education and independent research.  Freedom and independence have  always been essential   for  the quality of academic work.  Thanks to this , scholars and scientists  were restricted only by  their own ignorance, which in its  turn , was restricted by experience. It meant that the age of the scholar was usually connected to his knowledge. The older scientist had to be smarter and wiser.
