On the 14th of January the last TTYPE expert meeting took place before the termination of the project. During the morning all existing Pension Tracking Services in Europe were invited to exchange their experiences, challenges and ideas. Thus 11 out of 14 NTSs and the European Service for mobile researchers FindyourPension presented their websites and provisions in order to consider and discuss a possible support in the development process.
In the afternoon the general expert meeting took place discussing costs, roadmap and a possible governance of a future ETS. In front of around 60 participants from the pension scene a declaration on partnership was signed between TTYPE and FYP. Both parties declared to share the mission to strive for establishing a European pension tracking service and therefore declared their partnership by underlining 5 principles. Acknowledging that FYP is an ETS already in place it was agreed to cooperate in developing a solution for a complete ETS in which FYP will be preserved as an independent component. It was said that FYP is an efficient partner and inspiration towards implementing the general and basic knowledge on European Pension systems and Landscapes. In addition FYP’s knowledge and experience gained in terms of providing information to internationally mobile workers will be a useful contribution.
