Abstract: During structural changes suffered by the human society, the role of the firm alters, passing from industrial activity to global servicing. Business, technological and economic issues represent the main objectives in the activity developed by a firm. The policy of these firms reflects a nationalist attitude towards globalization which is considered a process of economic investments of foreign countries. At present, the firms must carry out a more responsible activity in order to achieve their diversified goals. The present tendency of science concentration generates questions about the threats that might hide behind “top of lance” technologies, such as: “algenia” invented by Joshua Lederbery for the new science obtained by combining biology and robotics. Such uncertainties stimulated a strong movement towards appropriate technologies
