The current paper is pursuing some of the benefits that could be obtained by each domain – economy and security – as a result of consolidating one another, as well as the possible dangers and security risks that countries might face, due to low economic performances or security underfunding. The arguments presented seek to increase the level of involvement in solving various challenges of these domains and the understanding that any overlooked disruptive factor or for which no solutions are sought today, may have multiplied future effects. Therefore, joint action is vital since the multiple connections, between economy and security, cause each domain to be foundation of stability and development for the other.
Romania's ageing population is a fact well established by specialists in statistical data analysis. The effects of this irreversible phenomenon, which is difficult to counteract in the current circumstances, are multiple - on the economy, generally, but especially on the service activities which are necessary for the target population - "old age" - in order to increase their quality of life. In this paper we proposed to analyze the level of ageing of the Romanian population, to identify the effects of this phenomenon on the economy and on the major economic sectors with emphasis on service activities. Tertiary sector activities are divided into two categories namely: those that can improve the quality of life of elders and services absolutely necessary for them - elderly care services, medical services, spa treatment services, social services etc.In order to achieve the objectives proposed in this paper, we used the analysis of the specialized literature on this subject up to this point and the descriptive statistics with which we interpreted the statistical data found in the official databases. The results of this study are to establish the existing relationship between the ageing process of the Romanian population and the response of the economy, and especially of the services to the needs of the elderly

As a concept, knowledge covers vast ground and has multiple meanings. In the present day, it is frequently encountered through the term ‘knowledge economy,’ which is usually used to refer to the importance of knowledge as a contemporary commodity. Public awareness of the importance of intellectual property in the information age is essential to the successful implementation and growth of the knowledge economy. Most people do not have a very clear idea about the role of intellectual property in encouraging creativity and the importance to our economic well-being. While it is necessary to increase public awareness in this area, it will not be easy. Intellectual property is typically perceived as being incomprehensible because just a little part of the people has education in this field. IP education means the skills and competences that young people can be expected to acquire in the classroom that enable them to become familiar with intellectual property, understand its potential to generate income and economic growth and lead them to respect IP rights. This paper will present the role that universities play in the development of the knowledge based economy and the need to have more educational programs in this field.

Given the profound changes of the financial systems as a result of the technological innovation, the economic liberalization and globalization in the recent decades, and the economic crisis, achieving financial stability is a necessity for the modern economies. In the national economies, ensuring financial stability is a priority for the central banks and the other regulating and supervising authorities. These issues, and others, are the main objectives of our research, and, by referring to the Romanian experience in terms of financial stability, through the conducted research, we intend to contribute to the systematization and the development of knowledge in this area.
We are living in the so-called era of fake news in which cybercriminals have been delving into this phenomenon and turning it into a lucrative business. Fake and invented media websites are created to resemble legitimate media. Some criminals use methods such as modifying legitimate documents and distribute them as part of, for instance, disinformation campaigns. Propaganda is unequivocally bound to national security and it is a risk to it. Since fake news is a unique area where challenges appear to be very complicated, it should be dealt with via more and better usage of national security communications. It is, therefore, no coincidence that the Collins Dictionary has announced “fake news” as a word of 2017. Furthermore, the European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel considers that fake news is suppressing the media and society as a whole, calling for an EU-level analysis in order to assess the amount to which fake news menaces the EU and pinpoint whether it is likely to find a common solution regarding this issue
