What is Euradria?
EURADRIA is a project co-funded by the EaSI (EaSI – EURES – Cross-border partnership and support to cooperation on intra-EU mobility for social partners and EEA countries) programme of the European Union.
EURADRIA’s objective is to keep supporting mobility in the cross-border area, by ensuring qualified assistance to workers and companies.
The geographical scope is the cross-border region between Italy and Slovenia, comprising the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia in Italy (NUTS 2 ITH4), 1.200.000 inhabitants, and the statistical regions of Goriška (NUTS 3 SI043), 118.421 abitanti, Obalno-kraška (NUTS 3 SI044), 117.000 inhabitants, and Notranjsko-kraška (NUTS 3 SI038), 53.100 inhabitants, in Slovenia.
If you work in one EU country and live in another country and return there every day, or at least once a week, you are considered a cross-border commuter under EU law (or cross-border worker or frontier worker).
EURARDIA consists of completely renewed virtual spaces and physical spaces dedicated to cross-border initiatives already in place in Italy and Slovenia, where the entire partnership is focused on the resolution of specific hindrances to mobility: safety at work, disability, taxation, family allowances and sickness among the key issues.
The establishment of a permanent cross-border observatory supervised by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Autonomous Region helps to detect and monitor the trends and dynamics affecting the cross-border market according to specific indicators.
Moreover, Euradria networks the skills of labour public offices, public and private Eures Advisers (employers and trade unions) in the cross-border area in order to strengthen cooperation in the sector of labour mobility and promote joint actions to support employment.
