The goal of the Europe 2020 strategy: smart, sustainable and inclusive growth would be achieved by using human capital and its abilities to innovate, to diffuse knowledge in manufacturing services, to develop creative industries and by making a great effort to create a research-intensive economy. The present paper highlights the impact of human capital on innovation and economic growth based on an econometric model. In our paper using annual data during 2000-2015, from UNESCO and Eurostat we prove a positive influence of human capital (expressed as gross enrolment in secondary school and the average personnel costs per employee in the Knowledge-intensive high-technology services) and innovation (expressed by patent application) on economic growth and productivity.
