    Abstract

    This chapter argues for a new role for universities in adding the training of (existing) professionals to the core agenda in parallel to academic education and scientific research. Based on experiences from Denmark new challenges both to academic knowledge and training are presented and way to overcome these problems are discussed. The educational principles are presented as a combination of educational learning and practice learning named as reflexive learning. The experience from working with reflexive learning is discussed and relation to the role it can play in creating profes-sionals and knowledge int the field of sustainable transformation.
