The technological progress is now one of the most important factors that determine the development of a modern global economy. It boosts the demand for highly competent workers. As a result, workforce employed in the information sector and hightech sectors is growing, while the number of workers in traditional sectors is constantly declining. A thesis can be put forward therefore that the future development of modern technologies will make the knowledge sector grow and significantly modify the economic space, because of investments allocated to the development of R+D centres.
