The POW-Bridge kick-off and methodology seminar was held in Vienna on 27 February 2020. The event brought together partners from six countries: four EU Member States (Austria, Italy, Slovakia, Slovenia) and two candidate countries from the Western Balkans (North Macedonia and Serbia). The project aims to investigate the gap between procedures (legal basis) and practices (experiences) in posting rule enactment as well as how the implementation of the Directive interacts with other EU and national regulations related to posting and how this influences employers’ practices and their deliberations to engage in posting. The project proposes to use novel methods of empirical data collection such as vignettes, therefore the Kick-Off was followed by a methodology seminar, in which the research design and the vignette method were discussed in detail.
