The Role of Human Resources in the European Union's Growth Strategy from the Perspective of Hungarian Regional Inequalities


  • Ágnes Hegyi-Kéri

    () (University of Miskolc)


The European Commission introduced the Europe 2020 growth strategy in order to recover from the crisis and prepare the European economy for the next decade. The employment crisis of the North Hungarian region accelerated after a decline in the economic growth in 2008. In this situation, the region is to adopt the national goals and take the responsibility that are needed to materialize the Europe 2020 strategy. Furthermore, innovation efficiency connected to human resources and its conditions regarding the defined aims on the level of national values are to be analysed. Emphasising those priorities that are to be accepted on the national level can advance the region's economic growth. One of the possibilities to place the brownfielded areas of the North Hungarian region on a new developing track is forming an institutional system based on centralised innovation and improving the backgrounds of human resources and setting forth long-term financing.
