The project has established an EU network of academics and practitioners on workers’ professional and geographical mobility to analyse new patterns of mobility and corresponding national policy developments in the context of the EES and post 2010. The network provides scientific background and support in the field of mobility and provides support to mobilising stakeholders by organising national and thematic workshops and an annual conference. A strong methodological work and the application of monitoring/evaluation methodologies are key project activities, especially in relation to the preparation of thematic reports. Synthesis and analysis of results of the work carried out by experts (case studies, annual reports etc.), quality control and consistency of reporting across the EU are also key elements of the assignment.
