How is the European Union progressing towards its Europe 2020 targets?

The Europe 2020 strategy – EU’s agenda for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth – was adopted by the European Council in June 2010 with the aim to overcome structural weaknesses in Europe’s economy, improve its competitiveness and productivity and underpin a sustainable social market economy. The EU targets are set in the five thematic areas: employment – research & development (R&D) and innovation – climate change and energy – education – poverty and social exclusion. EU Member States have translated these objectives into their national targets in order to reflect their situation and possibilities to contribute to the common goals.
