Strategies, Conventions, Standards and Instructions
„EUROPE 2020“ (Е 2020) is the EU’s growth strategy towards becoming a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy. The Union has set five ambitious objectives – on employment, innovation, education, social inclusion and climate/energy – to be reached by 2020.
“Education and Training 2020” (ET 2020) is a new strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training that builds on its predecessor, the “Education and Training 2010” (ET 2010) work programme. It provides common strategic objectives for the Member States, including a set of principles for achieving these objectives, as well as common working methods with priority areas for each periodic work cycle.
