Europe needs a new economic story because it faces a new economic challenge. The challenge is to transform European science and technology, knowledge and creativity, into jobs, growth and economic success. The generation, dissemination, application and exploitation of distinctive knowhow is the driving force behind economic growth in a globally interconnected economy. That puts a premium on innovation, entrepreneurship and agility.
