The Social Dimension of “Europe 2020” Strategy: the Inclusive Growth


  • Alina Ligia Dumitrescu



The article analyzes the complex issues of inclusive growth from the perspective strategy "Europe 2020". The inclusive growth could be achieved by increasing employment in the EU, and is closely linked to the other objectives of the "Europe 2020", as: research and development (R & D), climate change and energy, education and combating poverty. The progress in one field depends on how the other objects are implemented. High levels of education help to better employability and higher rates of employment support poverty reduction. Moreover, a greater capacity for R & D, together with better resource efficiency will improve competitiveness and promote the creation of new jobs. The same positive impact on creating new jobs has the investments in energy efficiency projects and the renewable energy incentives.
