The worldwide actions “are not good today, if yesterday did not think of tomorrow.” Therefore, it is necessary but not enough to understand today’s world and rely on data and scientific research results to adapt to a new era of innovation. Creativity and better services with low risks and high performances will lead to thinking out of the box especially in the finance domain where competition is strong while the demand and supply diversity is continuously driven by performances.

 “Omul îşi uită nevoile lui vechi pentru a simţi lipsuri noi”/ “People forget their old needs to feel new shortcomings.”

(Grigore Moisil)

The finance’s functions, priorities, challenges and capabilities are driven by restarting and high-performing strategic goals. These impose the need to understand that traditional financial aspects can indicate misleading signals for  forward-looking approches. The continuous improvement and innovation in a competitive environment are the remedy of a balanced attention to critical areas of business and governments measures with a more oriented focuse to human perspective. The broad changes induced by technologies and digitization require new approaches to finance whether we refer to individuals, organizations and governments. Therefore, the academic community and scientific research can make genuine contributions to financial pressures.
