The Europe 2020 strategy launched in March 2010 is giving the overall direction and political priorities for promoting smart, sustainable and inclusive growth up to 2020. It is conceived as a partnership between the EU and its Member States driven by the promotion of growth and jobs.
Constructed around five headline targets in the areas of employment, research and development, climate and energy, education and the fight against poverty and social inclusion, the strategy also set out a series of action programmes, called “flagship initiatives”.
