The Lisbon Strategy, launched in 2000, is becoming an increasingly important part of the EU agenda. Revitalising the strategy has been prioritised by Member States and within the new Commission team, the job of over-seeing the Lisbon strategy will be the responsibility of the President.
In response to a request from EPHA members, the Secretariat have developed a briefing note to explain the key elements of the Lisbon Strategy and the policy processes associated with Lisbon.
In November 2005 the European Commission published a list of National Reform Programmes for Growth and Jobs 2005-2008 undertaken by Member States in the framework of the Lisbon agenda.
The Commission is expected to adopt a Communication, called “Annual Progress Report”, based on analysis of National Reform Programmes just published, in January 2006.
