AMICO project, fostering the labour mobility of workers across Europe. The guidance practitioner and the transnational insertion in the EU

Enhancing the professionalization of job counsellors, strengthening matching skills at international level and improving the provision of services in support of intra-EU labour mobility keys to foster the mobility of EU workers

 

THE RELEVANCE OF INTRA-EU LABOUR MOBILITY FOR REVIVING THE EUROPEAN ECONOMY AND REALISING THE SINGLE MARKET

AMICOmannheimEU commission gives a key role to geographical labour mobility. In the Employment package 2012, it is stated that a genuine intra-EU mobility of workers could contribute to improve the allocation of resources, create job opportunities and foster economic growth. Similarly, the report EU Citizenship COM(2013) 269 final points out that proper labour mobility would enable to effectively tackle the mismatch of qualifications in Europe. Today European markets show significant unbalances: while in some countries the rate of unemployment is high, others show consistent numbers of unfilled vacancies.

The rationale behind AMICO project lies in the awareness that, although geographical labour mobility represents a powerful instrument to tackle imbalances in the labour market and to trigger economic recovery, its potential is not fully exploited. As data show, even though European people have a high propensity to transnational job mobility, labour mobility rates are low. According to the EU Working Documents (2014) only about 325.000 persons on average move annually to work in another member country; however, surveys show that the number of EU citizens expressing their willingness to move in the following 12 months amounts to 2.9 million, and figures are constantly rising.
