Employment and Social Cohesion


  • Scarlat, Valentin


The EU is striving to create growth and jobs through a multilateral approach. In particular, measures improving the competitiveness of our economies, stimulating innovation and productivity and strengthening the marginal incentives to work are considered. At the same time, EU energy policies are a sustainable way of creating jobs and enhancing growth and are hence a part of the solution to the current economic crisis. However, is to be stressed, the longer-term goal remains the building of Europe’s future prosperity on the basis of a knowledge (cognition) economy.
