A “knowledge-based economy” is key to handling the challenges of the future. An economy based on knowledge is also a pass to the land of development and competitiveness. In the brave new world of today, strong government, natural resources and hard work are no longer enough. Knowledge is essential to guarantee prosperity and security.

We asked sociology professor Lena Kolarska-Bobińska, Minister of Science and Higher Education in Ewa Kopacz’s government, to elaborate on the term “knowledge-based economy” and outline what it means for Poland. Taking up her ministerial post in November, Kolarska-Bobińska gave up her seat as a member of the European Parliament, which she had held since 2010.

If the Polish economy is to be effectively based on knowledge, the country’s education and science sectors must meet at least three requirements: they must prepare people to deal with the challenges of the modern world, foster innovation, and put research results into business practice. This is a leading developmental challenge for any society, ranking right behind or next to freedom and democracy.
