Innovation activity is aimed at the generation, assimilation and exploitation of research- development in the socio-economic field. Innovation is defined usually as the production, assimilation or exploitation with success of the newbness in economic and social area. In a dynamic economic environment, with a specific behavior for nonlinear complex systems, it poses a new challenge before organizations: innovation as an essential part of daily activities. Until recently, quality and productivity were key in ensuring the competitiveness of an organization, today it requires a new approach: product innovation and services innovation, which enforce the management innovation. Innovation involves, on one hand, creativity and on the other hand, placing with success the process of creativity. The research aims to produce knowledge, where knowledge is well caught in the working procedures so that they can sustain products, technologies and services, talking all in all about development. The three key pillars of the knowledge society: EDUCATION - RESEARCH - INNOVATION do represent key factors in ensuring competitiveness and cooperation in the global socio-economic development. Training human resources for the new society/knowledge-based economy requires an integrative vision for the entire lifecycle with the adjustment means and methods specific to each stage in close correlation with the evolution of science and culture, knowledge in general. The orientation towards vocational education skills and capacities to accumulate and exploit knowledge, to solve problems, to develop capacity for innovation and creation, to stimulate curiosity and desire to explore, is a necessity in the context of education and research globalization.
