Europe 2020 strategy/economic governance

In 2010, the EU launched its 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

The strategy defines five headline targets to be achieved by the end of 2020.

These targets cover

  • employment;
  • research and development;
  • climate/energy;
  • education;
  • social inclusion and poverty reduction.

In its research, the ETUI monitors and analyses progress towards these targets and through its education and trainings for trade unionists, it stimulates the reflection on the social aspects of Europe 2020.
