The country reports prepared by the national experts are intended to assist the Commission and Member States in the implementation of the Recommendation and inform its monitoring, in particular in the context of the European Semester and the cooperation in the social area between EU countries and the European Commission. They set out clearly what experts see as the priorities for action in each Member State.

The Synthesis Report, which has been produced by the Network Core Team (NCT) on the basis of the 28 independent experts’ reports,  brings together  the main findings of the country analyses and draws on these and the NCT’s overall assessment to put forward a series of concrete suggestions for advancing the implementation of the Recommendation at both national and EU levels.
