- social innovation and service-oriented economy,
- innovation and globalisation,
- innovation in a forward-looking perspective.
The Europe 2020 Strategy is an initiative to boost Europe's competitiveness, productivity, growth potential and economic convergence. It will focus on key areas where action is needed, including: knowledge and innovation, a more sustainable economy, high employment and social inclusion.
