The mission of the project is to derive a strategy for a more dynamic, inclusive and sustainable Europe. Our tentative results indicate that this is possible if Europe goes for a "high-road strategy" based on quality, skills and innovation. Based on this strategy Europe should try to become a role model for the globalised world.
