Resumen: In the framework of the EU-Socrates Program the NESOR-consortium, consisting of partners of six EU-member states, carries out from 2006 to 2008 a project aimed at examining national approaches of the reforms in higher education under the aegis of the Bologna and Copenhagen Declarations, as well as, at detecting the role of higher education in the European social model of the emerging knowledge society. This can be resumed in the following research questions divided into two blocks:
This number of the Volume 3 of the dia-e-logos – Journal for Social Science was published in 2008 presenting the results of the research undertaken in Austria, Hungary, Italy, the Netherland, Poland and Spain. It focused on the questions: How the knowledge-based society developed in the EU member states, how the European society perceived the social risks, which are emerging in the transition to the knowledge-based society, and which functions accomplished the universities in this transition?
For technical reasons, the articles of the journal were not available in the Internet. The editorial board of dia-e-logos decided to republish the article in one joint publication considering that the questions, which NESOR addressed, have not lost relevance. On the contrary in times of societal stress caused by the Covid 19 and political decision, the questions are even more relevant.
