The Danube Strategy in the Priority Area 7 - To develop the Knowledge Society (research, education and ICT), where the Serbia is a coordinator, has a great potential for strengthening cooperation between the countries of the region. Countries of the Danube Region are each very different, but these disparities could be overcome in certain areas by working together on solving a large number of challenges that are in front of everyone. Serbia has the potential to increase its competitiveness through research and development, education, increased mobility of highly educated, technological innovation, and etc. The experience of developed countries shows that a much larger proportion of investment in the development and dispersion of knowledge has a positive effect on economic growth and national income. Investing in people is very much needed in Serbia and in the whole region also, because that way we can ensure long-term prosperity and sustainable development. Since the objective of the Strategy is a better connection, coordination and cooperation among the countries of the Danube Region, as a matter of Priority Area 7 we believe that Serbia has a lot to gain with this type of cooperation. Creation and constant improvements of skilled labor may, in the long run, lead to better positioning of Serbia in the World.
