18 Oct Slovenia need a new Vision of Economic and Social Development (1 + 4 + 16 pages)
Engineering Academy of Slovenia (IAS) 2014
Slovenia is falling behind in technological development because of economic reasons as well as because technological intelligence has been left out from deciding on key questions on economic, predominantly industrial, and general society development. Slovenian Academy of Engineering has carried out consultations to point out, for the public and decision-makers, the inadequate state on different fields that are creating the present economic crisis.
The position paper is divided in three parts: first, named “Initiative for New Industrial Development of Slovenia” is summarizing 7 propositions from the position paper. Second, named “Vision, Direction, Propositions” is dividing propositions in three main fields: industrial policy, education and research and is presenting together 17 propositions. Third part, named “Purpose of the Initiative and Propositions of Slovenian Academy of Engineering”, is further explaining propositions from first two parts.
The position paper was distributed together with the Comparative Analysis of Higher Education, Research, Development, Innovations and Economy Achievements of Slovenia to relevant state institutions and other interested organisations.
