Europe's competitiveness, or more specifically that of the European Union (EU), is once again high on the political agenda. The perennial comparisons with the US economy have been joined in more recent years by the challenges posed by the commercial awakening of China and India. Given the difficulty the EU has in making politically awkward decisions, continuing to spend on subsidizing training interventions provides an ideal opportunity to be seen to be responding.

Practical implications

Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
