International Symposium Shaping Europe 2020: Socio-Economic Challenges

International Symposium Shaping Europe 2020: Socio-Economic Challenges will take place on 18-19 November 2011 in Bucharest, Romania. The objective of the symposium is to share our experiences in the socio-economic field in the context of Europe 2020. We are living in a changing and unpredictable world, and the only way to cope with it is to build a powerful strategy for EU’s growth that will reflect on our everyday lives.

Three ambitious pillars are established for this strategy: EU economy should become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy for the mutual benefit of EU member states and sustain their effort to deliver high levels of employment, productivity and social cohesion.

To measure in meeting the Europe 2020 goals, it has also been agreed upon five ambitious targets on employment, innovation, education, social inclusion and climate/energy. This set of EU-level targets is translated into national strategies in each EU country, reflecting different situations and circumstances.
