But despite long seasons of discussion about priorities and numerous criticisms of the slow progress towards the 2010 goal of “the world’s most efficient and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world”, a comprehensive view of the challenge has been lacking. There was a general reluctance to relate lack of achievement to inadequate governance at the EU level and, until the financial crisis struck in 2008, a failure to focus on the growing divergence of competitiveness between Union member states….
