Web Site

Short Description
With more than 118 000 commuters [active daily commutes between a place of residence and a place of work in the form of pendular movements or ‘shuttles’] each day, the Saar-Lor-Lux-Rheinland-Palatinate is one of the border regions with the largest volumes of cross-border commuting in the whole European Union.

The Saar-Lor-Lux-Rheinland-Palatinate partnership, which was set up in 1997, serves as a model in several respects, with more than 50 cross-border projects taking place in each EURES budgetary year.
The cross-border partnership is based on the following three aims:
1.         to inform the public about living and working conditions in the four partner regions;
2.         to promote the exchange of information on supply and demand in the labour market and, in particular, to improve placement opportunities;
3.         to encourage mobility and cross-border social dialogue by establishing a forward-looking, coordinated labour-market policy.
