Europe 2020 - the new EU strategy takes shape

With the new European Commission being finally confirmed by the European Parliament last week (see also my blog post of last week) full dedication can be given to the new EU strategy "Europe 2020" succeeding the previous programme i2010.

As President Barroso outlines on the Commission's EU 2020 website this strategy shall be instrumental for the transformation of Europe "into a new sustainable social market economy, a smarter, greener economy where our prosperity will result from innovation and from using resources better, and where knowledge will be the key input."

There is a very good presentation from Commission provided as "Background Information for the Informal European Council, 11 February 2010". It outlines all the key challenges for this new decade, be it the aging population, climate change, education, etc. And so it defines the spectrum of the programme for the Europe 2020 work. Worth a look at...

We should thank you for giving such a wonderful blog. Your site

happens to be not only informative but also very imaginative too. We

find a limited number of experts who can think to write technical

articles that creatively. All of us are on the lookout for information

on something like this. I Myself have gone through several blogs to

build up on knowledge about this.We look forward to the next posts!!
