Abstract
The world is entering a new era - a time when economic wealth is created by knowledge
and skills and the human capital of nations, regions and cities will determine the winners
from the loosers. The paper is focused on the human capital’s performance of the romanian
regions, measured by economic growth and employment, analysing statistical data from
european sources. There are differences between regions regarding the human capital
endowment, employment and economic growth. The assumption of a positive correlation
between these variables is partially confirmed. Further researches are needed to measure the
impact of other factors such as: human migration or attractivity of regions. Designing and
developing regional human capital strategies would be a good starting point for a positive
perspective of the Europe 2020 strategy implementation.
Key words: human capital, regional employment, regional growth
