Europe, Innovation and Society

The European dimension for the achievement of a new scientific citizenship is one of the main aims of Città della Scienza. In order to face the challenges of globalization, overexploitation of natural resources, population ageing, Europe needs a joint effort. For this reason, the European Commission has launched the Europe 2020 strategy for building an intelligent, sustainable and inclusive economy with high levels of employment, productivity and social cohesion. An intelligent development means promoting knowledge and innovations as driving forces of our future economy. Achieving these goals require an improvement of the quality of education, research, innovation and technological transfer toward all the citizens.
