Since we intend to approach a knowledge-based economy, economic issues of the development of scientific and technological knowledge should play a key role. However, according to my observations, these issues seem under-estimated or even neglected at numerous international conferences devoted to science and technology policy which I happened to attend in recent years.

Moreover, according to the Lisbon Strategy, the European Union should be soon (in 2010) the most competitive economy in the world. It will be impossible without a much higher lever of its innovativeness. In other words, technological innovation and technology transfer (TT) must play a bigger and bigger role in the region’s economy.

So, the main aim of this session is to discuss economic aspects of the development of innovation and TT in the context of the two above challenges. Both innovation and the transfer of technology are here critically important. But what are interdependencies between them as factors of economic development? This will be a crucial question to be answered during the session.
