At xxx, the focus increasingly came to lie at the European level.
Explanation: Of course, everyone tells you not to use the passive voice in English, and Word absolutely abhors it, but it does have a place, especially in 'serious' or technical writing. 'increasingly' is a good option for 'steeds meer' if you are aiming for a somewhate elevated style; 'more and more' is a bit more familiar.
