The participation of the partners of the Cooperation… project was part of the agenda of activities provided for in it.

The European Labor Mobility Congress (ELMC), of a scientific and practical nature, has as its main objective the creation of spaces for the exchange of experiences between the following environments: academic (legal and economic), public administration, unions, politicians and business – employers (entrepreneurs) who post workers.

Given the current political and economic situation, the main themes of the VII ELMC have been the mobility of Ukrainian citizens under the freedom to provide services in the single market and cross-border home care services for the elderly , taking into account theaging of European Union societies and the vast demand created for long-term home care services, which are largely provided cross-border thanks to the European freedom of service provision.

On the first day of the ELMC celebration, guests and representatives of all circles met in plenary session to discuss and seek solutions to important problems for their representatives. These speakers included, among others: Cosmin Boiangiu , Director General of the European Employment Office (ELA); Henrik Saugmandsgaard , former CJEU Advocate General, Partner at the Gorrissen law firm Federspie in Copenhagen; Prof Herwig Verschueren from the University of Antwerp and Frederic De Wispelaere from the Research Institute for Labor and Society HIVA-KU Leuven .

The second day’s program included several practical workshops led by experts and lawyers specializing in employment and social security law from EU Member States, as well as tax and European law, from countries such as Sweden, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium or France.

The event has been coordinated by Dr. Marek Benio , vice president of the Labor Mobility Institute and coordinator of our Cooperation project.
