Abstract: Demand for knowledge has become the main engine for knowledge driven economic development. In this respect, to make national and European initiatives effective, it is necessary to define the demand for knowledge, able to contribute to European dynamic development.

The collection is also oriented to define problems and possible solutions for governmental, business, educational, academic, non-governmental and international institutions, which could be used as a background for their policy-making. The main topics discussed here are: • Demand for Knowledge in Modern Development; • Sectoral and Regional Aspects of Innovation; • Institutional Dynamics of Demand for New Knowledge; • Legal Framework for Developing Demand for New Knowledge; • Demand for Social Sciences and Humanity; • Human Factor in Knowledge Society.
