Central and East European countries: innovation leapfrog versus “path dependence”?
AbstractStrengthening the EU economic and political environment would positively affect the global development. Albeit, building the internal life in the enlarging European society per se represents quite a challenging task. Increasing diversity engenders a huge variety of never seen before problems, which must be responded in appropriate manner. Within this multifold complexity, and despite the variety of issues related to elaboration of a new economic agenda for the member state countries this is specifically innovation path of economic development which would be emphasized as the main underlying route for approaching the prosperous future. This article highlights some problems and prospects of CEEC’ (Central and East European countries) innovation driven development.
