Europe and the Liability for Knowledge-based Security

Stojko Dimitrov Stoykov


Investments in education, training and keeping an active policy for their construction are a major pillar of the renewed Lisbon Strategy in 2005 for the development of economy and a society based on knowledge. European Research Area (EEA) experiences a crucial moment of the EU response to the challenges of globalization in the context of the Lisbon strategy. The desired end result is a unified European labor market for researchers, where the scientific potential can cross borders freely, as it happens with goods, people, services and capital. The studies related to security, generate new knowledge and promote the application of new technologies. This in its turn stimulates the introduction of new interdisciplinary scientific disciplines and the utilization of the capacity of non-tertiary research organizations during the preparation of young scientists. University education, especially in masters and doctoral programs, is unthinkable without active research. The ambitious task for implementation of the changes in the form of initiatives and innovation activities is hampered by the radical changes in the surrounding environment. In the chaotic environment are needed new creative behavior and an universal approach for efficient and rational changes.

 Key words: research, security, movement of knowledge, professional development, knowledge as capital
