The paper provides an overview of the structural trends faced nowadays by European Research Area (ERA). These trends reflect not only societal developments, but also the changing structures of research itself. Beginning from the general context of understanding the concept of ERA as one of the core elements of the renewed Lisbon Strategy for Growth and Jobs, our paper is based on the conclusions and recommendations made by Metris Report 2009 – Emerging trends in Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities in Europe. In this sense, we analyze the new complex issues approached by EU researchers and scientists, with focus on innovation issue, concluding with the challenges for ERA success and Metris Report recommendations.
