Abstract


Abstract. This theoretical article analyses problems and development processes typical for the high technologies sector in the European Union in the context of contemporary challenges of globalisation, European integration, creation of the knowledge-based society and knowledge economy, as well as in the context of intellectualisation processes in the social and economic life in general.
The article focuses on the needs and priorities of creation and further development and modernisation of high technologies sector in the European Union in the context of intellectualisation processes of social and economic life, as well as on the theoretical concept that could be used as a theoretical basis for strategic solutions and decisions oriented towards the innovative development and modernisation of high technologies sector in the European Union.
The processes of creation and further development of high technologies sector are defined as an especially important social, economic and technological transformation in the contemporary society and in the social and economic life of the European Union. The trends of creation of the high technologies sector in the context of enlargement of the European Union are described and analysed. The article discusses some new unconventional ideas and models of possible economic development in the context of intellectualisation processes in general, as well as of the development of high technologies sector. It analyses the processes of development of integral high technologies oriented towards European economic, social and cultural space.
The needs and priorities of creation and further development of the high technologies sector in the European Union, as well as the main challenges for the creation, development and further modernisation of the high technologies sector in the context of globalisation, European integration and creation of the knowledge-based society and knowledge economy are discussed in detail. The structure and the main spheres and parts of the modern high technologies sector in the European Union are characterised.
The following features of social, economic and technological development, including the processes of development of the high technologies sector, under the conditions of the enlargement of the European Union and the processes of globalisation deserve particular attention: intensive diversification of traditional economic structures, profound changes in all sectors of national economic systems as well as in the economy of the European Union in general. The rise of the role of high technologies sector should be defined as an especially important factor of contemporary social, economic and technological development. It must be noted that there are many possibilities to implement new unconventional ideas of intensive social, economic and technological development, which could be very successful in the European Union in the context of contemporary challenges of the development and modernisation of the high technologies sector. It should be emphasised that the implementation of such ideas is very important for the development of the high technologies sector as well as in influencing positive social, economic and technological changes in the European Union in general.
