  • Marioara RUSU

    () (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


Starting with the 1950s, the regional development concept has been increasingly present both in the academic and in the practical debates. In many countries, mainly in the developed ones, the national social and economic development strategies include the regional dimension in their componency. The main goal of this paper is to make a diagnosis analysis of the South-East region as regards innovation, research, development and education and to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats specific to this domain (SWOT analysis). The analysis leads us to the conclusion that in terms of these dimensions, the South-East region is under or at the level of national average, ranking among the last regions of the EU. The obtained results can be useful to political decision-makers for the elaboration of efficient development strategies for the region.
