The Kick-Off Meeting was the first joint meeting for the Consortium Members, European labour and civil society organisations in our European Stakeholder Committee, and scientific advisors to the project to get familiar with and discuss the work to be carried out in the EUROSHIP project and to agree on the next steps in the implementation of the project. The presentations and discussions on the first day started with placing EUROSHIP in the context of Horizon 2020 and the ongoing discussions about Social Europe and the European Pillar of Social Rights. The first day continued with presentations of the analytical framework and methods used in EUROSHIP. The second day the participants discuss in more detail the activities in the project. During the two days , European labour and civil society organisations and researchers engaged in lively discussions about the challenges ahead of the EU and the Member States in closing gaps in European social citizenship. All participants enjoyed the discussions during this first meeting in EUROSHIP.
