Set out by the Heads of State and of Government at the Lisbon European Council in March 2000, the Lisbon Strategy is an action and development plan for jobs and economic growth in the EU. Policy measures proposed under the Lisbon Strategy cover a wide range of national and Community policies, aiming to support knowledge and innovation, make Europe a more attractive place to invest and work, and create more and better jobs.
The Lisbon Strategy was relaunched after a mid-term review in 2005. Based on a close partnership with the Commission, the Member States have been undertaking reforms that are based on collectively agreed policy guidelines as well as National Reform Programmes.
For the programming period 2007-13 the link between the Lisbon Strategy and Cohesion Policy has been reinforced, with increased spending under the Structural and Cohesion Funds on priority activities that contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the Lisbon Strategy for growth and jobs.
