The present paper examines the importance of education as a cornerstone to the knowledge-based society of future Europe and to its implementation in Romania. The aim herein is to outline that at present, in order for the society to meet the current needs and to lie the foundations of highly performing, receptive economy in terms of the specific requirements of ”knowledge-based society”, it must promote and implement new, modern management techniques, knowledge, and tools to support such activities. The most outstanding sector in the relationship among research, development and innovation is education regarded as the ”generator of knowledge-based society”. Unfortunately, in Romania there are many weaknesses and strong challenges in the successful implementation of the European model (Europe 2020) which promotes ”intelligent, sustainable, inclusive economy”1.
