Acquisition of new knowledge which will be necessary in the future, should be an imperative, knowledge which will ensure a more prosperous future and which implies openness to technology and innovations. Accelerated technological development means that knowledge sets required in the future will be different from the present ones, which in turn calls for lifelong learning as a prerequisite for future success.
