Three priorities should be the heart of Europe 20202:

• Smart growth, by developing an economy based on knowledge and innovation.

• Sustainable growth, by promoting a more resource efficient, greener and more competitive economy.

• Inclusive growth, by fostering a high-employment economy delivering economic, social and territorial cohesion.

These three priorities are mutually reinforcing; they offer a vision of Europe's social market economy for the 21st century. Smart growth means strengthening knowledge and innovation as drivers of our future growth. This requires improving the quality of our education, strengthening our research performance, promoting innovation and knowledge transfer throughout the Union, making full use of information and communication technologies and ensuring that innovative ideas can be turned into new products and services that create growth, quality jobs and help address European and global societal challenges. At national level, Member States will need to ensure a sufficient supply of science, mathematics and engineering graduates and to focus school curricula on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
