How to

Governance of the EURES network

The activities of the EURES network are supported by the European Coordination Office (ECO) managed by the European Labour Authority. Each participating country (31) designates a National Coordination Office (NCO), generally linked to either their Public Employment Services (PES) or their Ministry of Labour. All NCOs, the European Commission and ECO are exchanging information and supporting the implementation of the EURES Regulation in the EURES Coordination Group (ECG). Representatives of the social partners at EU level have the right to attend the meetings of the ECG. 

The European Commission remains an important partner of the EURES network. The political steer including legislation, reporting, evaluation, and grant management remain under the Commission framework. 

EURES Coordination Group  

The mission of the EURES Coordination Group is to exercise a coordinating role with regard to the activities and functioning of the EURES network. It serves as a platform for the exchange of information and for the sharing of best practices, in particular regarding the development and dissemination across the EURES network of appropriate information and guidance to workers, including frontier workers, and employers. The Coordination Group shall support the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2016/589 by exchanging information and developing guidance.

 
 
EURES and ELA together for fair and effective mobility 

The ELA coordinates the EURES network since 2021. EURES and ELA share the mission of ensuring that workers' rights are recognised, when they move to another EU country, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland and employers can hire candidates from these countries without barriers.

In the medium to long term, ELA’s goal is to maximise synergies between EURES and all other ELA activities, especially provision of information, and improve EURES' services from a digital and technological point of view. More importantly, EURES can be further strengthened in the context of ELA. For example, with the increased cross-border cooperation that ELA promotes by streamlining the activities of existing networks, such as the European Platform tackling undeclared work.
