Europe 2020 Europe 2020 is the EU's growth strategy for the coming decade. Europe needs to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy. help the EU and the Member States deliver high levels of employment, productivity and social cohesion. Five ambitious objectives: employment innovation education social inclusion climate/energy Each MS has adopted its own national targets in each of these areas. Concrete actions at EU and national levels underpin the strategy 3 4. Innovation UnionA pocket guide on a Europe 2020 initiative Europes future is connected to its power to innovate. The Innovation Union, an action-packed initiative for an innovation-friendly Europe, is the solution. It forms part of the Europe 2020 strategy that aims to create smart, sustainable and inclusive growth4 5. EC White Paper 2011Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area - Towards a competitive and resource efficient transport system5 6. EC White Paper - Summary Roadmap of 40 concrete initiatives to: build a competitive transport system that will increase mobility, remove major barriers in key areas and fuel growth and employment dramatically reduce Europe's dependence on imported oil and cut carbon emissions in transport by 60% by 2050 No more conventionally-fuelled cars in cities 40% use of sustainable low carbon fuels in aviation; at least 40% cut in shipping emissions 50% shift of medium distance intercity passenger and freight journeys from road to rail and waterborne transport.6 7.
