Do you need to get your qualifications from your home EU country recognised?

On Monday 18th April, between 1100 and 1300 CET (1200 – 1400 GMT), 5 legal experts from the Your Europe Advice network will gather for 2 hours to reply to practical questions on professional qualifications. Policy expert colleagues from DG GROW will also be present to help them with questions with a more political nature.
The chat platform is now public, so questions can already be submitted to the wall of the Facebook ‘event’.
You can ask questions in English, French, Italian and Swedish.
