On 23 September 2019, MoveS in collaboration with its Dutch national expert, Anne Pieter van der Mei and Item will open a new MoveS seminar in the Netherlands dedicated to cross-border mobility within the EU region (Meuse-Rhine region in the particular example), and it is becoming clear that numerous legal and practical obstacles to such mobility exist, including those concerning taxation, social security, recognition of diploma and qualifications.
The MoveS seminar in the Netherlands would aim to identify these obstacles and to consider best practices, rules, or solutions on how to eliminate these obstacles. Experiences of the EU region Meuse-Rhine may serve as a source of inspiration for other areas.

Prof. Ferdinand Wollenschlager, MoveS Analytical Expert, University of Augsburg;
Prof. Marion Weerepas, Maastricht University;
Bastiaan Didden, Maastricht University;
Suzanne Jongste, Maastricht University;
Saskia Montebovi, Tilburg University, and Maastricht University;

MoveS (Free Movement of Workers and Social Security Coordination) is a European Commission-funded network of independent experts from 32 European countries coordinated by Eftheia and Deloitte with the support of the University of Ljubljana and the University of Poitiers.
The event has been hosted on Buitenplaats Vaeshartelt a nice location for deep reflection regarding the complications of laws in the European Union.
A personal conclusion can be the emergency of legislative harmonization and more political involvement for social protection from common funds instead of national ones.
