EU 2020 Strategy: Overview of Responses to Public Consultation Call

Following the recent public consultation on the EU 2020 strategy, the EC has published the first overview of results. The consultation paper proposed three main priorities, of growth from knowledge, inclusive societies and a greener, competitive economy and asked for further contributions from all citizens in Europe.

Contributors pointed out worsening public finances, due to the economic crisis, and also agreed that some EU targets should be translated down into national ones. Education, innovation and skills strategies need to become more structured according to many suggestions.  Only then, the ideal of a competitive, greener, more socially inclusive EU may be realised.
