    In the context of intensive discussion regarding the effectiveness of internal studies’ quality management systems implemented by universities and the potential of generic quality management models developed outside of higher education to contribute tangibly, this paper aims to perform the analysis and comparison of specific and generic quality management models applied by universities within the European Higher Education Area and to discover whether generic quality management models are relevant for European universities of today and how can they be applied. Methods of document analysis, modelling, classification and comparative analysis have been employed for the research. Results reveal that some elements of generic quality management models can compensate weak points of specific ones. Thus, the approach for European universities of how to integrate these different models is proposed in the paper.

    The paper aims to evaluate the impact of support on Lithuanian farms investments. Logistic regression, also called a logit model, was used to determine the probability of investing. The regression was estimated on cross-sectional data set of Lithuanian family farms participating in the Farm Accountancy Data Network. It was specified for investments in machinery and equipment. The research showed that support encourages investments in machinery and equipment. However, scenario analysis revealed that the impact of different support scenarios on the probability of investing is relatively small. It was also confirmed the importance of farm characteristics in making investments.

    Management theory and studies for rural business and infrastructure development = Vadybos mokslas ir studijos - kaimo verslų ir jų infrastruktūros plėtrai : mokslo darbai, 2015, vol. 37, no. 3, p. 406-414
    The article presents an assumption that the characterization of regional innovativeness requires an assessment on many levels, mainly at the regional level. For this reason in this research paper is applied the linear method of ordering objects as an instrument for assessing and comparing the level of innovativeness on the example of Polish voivodships. The aim of research is to present the TOPSIS method as an instrument for assessing and comparing the level of innovativeness of Polish voivodships. Research object: innovative potential of Poland voivodships. The results allowed identifying the level of differentiation among Polish voivodships in terms of distance of the object from the “ideal” and “undesirable”, as well as making their hierarchy and arranging them in 3 groups of innovativeness. The research and its results lead to the conclusion that the proposed method is a useful tool in evaluating the regions according to their innovativeness level.

    The purpose of presented study is to find out main issues of development of eco-innovation in the Baltic States and to outline the main directions for further research, where the tasks of study are: to clarify the concept and definition of eco-innovation; and to estimate the current situation regarding eco innovation’s development in the Baltic States. The research methods used, depending on the task: literature review, descriptive and inferential statistics, comparative method, as well as content analysis and systematization. European eco-innovation index (countries’ performance) shows that in general the Baltic States are lagging behind both other EU Member States and Baltic Sea Region countries. Although Estonia is the leader among Baltic States, Lithuania shows faster growth but Latvia lags behind.
