The Lisbon strategy
for economic, social
and environmental

"The Lisbon Strategy is a commitment to bring about economic, social and environmental renewal in the EU. In March 2000, the European Council in Lisbon set out a ten-year strategy to make the EU the world's most dynamic and competitive economy. Under the strategy, a stronger economy will drive job creation alongside social and environmental policies that ensure sustainable development and social inclusion.

The Lisbon Strategy touches on almost all of the EU's economic, social and environmental activities. The European Commission's annual Spring Report examines the Strategy in detail. The Spring Report is the only document on the agenda of the Spring European Council, where EU Heads of State and Government assess the progress of the strategy and decide future priorities in order to realize the Lisbon targets."

Knowledge Anywhere Anytime - or "The Social Life of Knowledge" - Workshop Report - 13 Jul 2004


Within the scope of its preparations for the design and launch of activities under the European Research Framework Programme VII - which will start in 2007 - DG Information Society held a number of exploratory workshops during 2004 .

Knowledge is created by people in the context of the communities, networks and teams in which they work. Knowledge emerges through conversations, connections and relationships of people with their peers, known and unknown. Knowledge surfaces through dialog and is socially mediated. Access to knowledge is by connecting to people that know or know who to contact and making possible the rich interactions which enable knowledge to emerge."
