Europe 2020

Europe 2020 is the name of the EU's plan for creating job and growth in the years until 2020. EU leaders agreed upon it in 2010, as the overall framework for a number of different initiatives. The plans include, among other initiatives, reforms of how the markets work and more investment in education and research. A well-known slogan is that Europe 2020 will ensure that Europe has 'smart growth' (building on knowledge and new ideas), 'sustainable growth' (focus on green issues) and 'inclusive growth' (advantages also for weaker citizens and regions).
