The prosperity of the citizens in this type of society is a function of the scientific research, the technological development and the general education. They include a wide variety of skills and problem solving methods and techniques that give rise to the appropriate professional performance and competence. Networking methods and the evolving needs for competence on all levels of life demand flexibility and adaptability of the education systems. Every country’s authority should promote networking at all levels of the education process in order to create a suitable environment for life-long learning.
