Final Meeting of the Project Group on Empowering European Families in Vienna (Austria)


The Working Group and Advisory Committee of the ELI Project on Empowering European Families: Towards More Party Autonomy in European Family and Succession Law held their final meeting on 26-27 April in Vienna at the premises of the ELI Secretariat.

The meeting aimed at summarising the results achieved by the Group since January 2016, when the Project began. After having over ten successful Working Group meetings and following numerous presentations of the interim output of the project at several public workshops and conferences, including the 2016 and 2017 ELI Annual Conferences, the Group have convened once more to discuss the current state of affairs of their Project, analyse its final output as well as discuss dissemination strategies and possibilities of follow-up Project.

Taking comments the Team received from stakeholders into consideration, they managed to reduce the previous seven different templates to just three: one for married couples, one for registered partners and one for informal relationships.

Among other dissemination events, select members of the team will present the project’s output at the ELI’s upcoming Annual Conference in Riga (Latvia).
