AbstractThe paper deals with the approaches for satisfying the need for the training of modern labour force capable of implementing innovation. The focus of the research is the existing and potentially new institutional mechanisms for enhanced co-operation among the various key stakeholders. The authors’ assumption is that more co-operation between the higher education and research system on the one hand, and the vocational education system on the other hand, would have a beneficial influence on the overall labour force training at all levels to promote innovation. Therefore, the target group for the empirical study of the present research have been medium and high level public administrators in both systems. This has allowed to obtain more objective are representative data and to determine the attitudes among various relevant stakeholders and decision makers regarding our research issue. This has also enabled us draw the conclusions regarding the vision of the Latvian public administrators on the existing gaps and the potentially needed future steps, also regarding the introduction and strengthening of new institutional approaches.
