The emergence and development of technologies is important in shaping our lives in contemporary society. Technology is involving capacities to develop new ways of doing things: often in a reproducible manner. That is, finding ways to better reproduce things in an easier, quicker and cheaper manner.
Technology that is concentrated in industrialized nations to date is a proof to demonstrate the majority of its benefits. Thus technology has a large role to play in developing regions and there is a need for technological research in order to develop regions.
Technological advances have been the principle drivers of globalisation beginning in the middle of the 20th<>/sup century. Technological advancements are inevitable and desirable, promoting a global economy, rendering national border meaningless, exceeding national states and national economies that have become essentially obsolete and leading to a worldwide global market.
Technology cannot be stopped it will continue to shape society for the better, being seen as a good thing. Globalization accelerates the change of technology. Every day it seems that a new technological innovation is being created. Rapid changes in technology generate in society a technological enthusiasm, by embracing it and looking forward to more and more developments.
Technology is now the forefront of the modern world creating new jobs, innovations, and networking that allow individuals, nations and regions to connect globally.
Access to technology has a beneficial economic impact. Alongside good governance, technology is considered among the greatest enablers for improved quality of life. Technology is usually associated with productivity, both generating international competitiveness.
There are two important related trends in the world economy: first, technological innovations are an important factor for economic welfare and secondly the nations become more open and interdependent. Rapid communications and networking between scientists worldwide facilitate the development of inventions and the spread of innovative ideas.
Industrial innovation increasingly occurs within international networks. Public research, technology and innovation policies are dominated by transnational programmes and regional innovation policies, leading to future governance of innovation policies.
We are looking forward to welcome you in Tîrgu-Mureș!
