Abstract. Knowledge management (KM) and innovation (INNO) are often defined as the key drivers for improvement of organizational performance. The purpose of this paper is to explore the impacts of KM on INNO in an academic environment. The results of this study are based on survey data collected during 2017 in 30 public universities equally located in 3 regions of Vietnam. Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) is used to test the hypothesized relationships between KM and INNO. The authors of this study have found that KM comprehensively impacts technical INNO in academic settings and that not all components of KM are directly associated with administrative INNO. Besides enriching the literatures on this rapport, this study is also of value in managerial perspective as it helps increase higher education institutions’ (HEIs) knowledge on how to boost their organisational innovativeness, and then enhance performance by engaging in KM activities. A list of measurement scales serving as a checklist for leadership of any HEI desire to practice KM and then boost organizational innovation is provided by this study.
