Romania Within The European Union And The Requirements Of The Knowledge-Based Society – The Need Of Catching-Up Through Articulated Strategies

The major challenge for individuals, firms and countries, as well was, until recently, to ensure sustainable global competitiveness; but, into the new circumstances of the knowledge-based society, this seems to be an even harder to get objective – especially for the entities which have not reached yet a minimal level of measurable performances on the defining coordinates of the knowledge based society. The conclusion – not only logical, but also necessary – is that any strategy aiming the transition to the knowledge-based society must integrate a series of well defining and indispensable elements. The measure of its efficiency and effectiveness will be given by its ability to ensure a sustainable competitiveness in the global, knowledge-based economy.
