The ‘Europe 2020’ strategy, adopted in June 2010 by the Council of Europe, is a multi-faceted strategy for sustainable growth and jobs for the coming decades, the aim of which is to help Europe emerge stronger from the world's worst economic crisis since the 30s of the 20th century.
The Europe ‘2020’ strategy puts forward three mutually reinforcing priorities:
- Smart growth: developing an economy based on knowledge and innovation;
- Sustainable growth: promoting a more resource efficient, greener and more competitive economy;
- Inclusive growth: fostering a high-employment economy delivering social and territorial cohesion.
