Knowledge and Learning Society Series

A book series edited by Dr. Miltiadis D. Lytras, University of Patras,


The knowledge society is often treated as a utopia, where optimistic
considerations for the role of new technologies envision unrealistic value-
adding services for citizens, and knowledge is purported to create dramatic
economic advances.

In the last years, several scientific disciplines have initiated debates on
the characteristics of the knowledge society and the required consultations
towards the establishment of managing bodies, the crafting of strategies
and policies as well as the specification of action programs.

Given the significance of the knowledge society as a new context of our
era, four significant objectives formulate the justification of our book

1. The need to investigate the soft and hard aspects of the knowledge
society, with the aim of providing organizational and cultural frameworks
as well as infrastructures enabled by the evolution of information

2. The need to provide a sustainable worldwide knowledge society vision
based on collaboration, knowledge and learning for all and especially for
people in need.

3. The need to anchor government policies in scientific evidence concerning
the characteristics of the emerging knowledge intensive economy and social

4. The need to investigate the key priorities of the knowledge society in
terms of critical aspects of human life (e.g. health, education, culture,
science, business etc).

The titles in this book series are intended to promote the Knowledge and
Learning society as the context of our leaving for the 21st century. Our
titles target to the society bringing fresh ideas, technologies and novel
approaches for sustainable development.
