Actividades del Instituto Europeo de Seguridad Social

El EISS organiza varias actividades a los largo de los próximos meses, en especial su Congreso de Octubre sobre “Integración Social a través de la Seguridad Social”, pero también el Foro para Jóvenes Investigadores, la Escuela de Verano y el Master en Seguridad Social Europea, ambas últimas actividades en colaboración con la Universidad Católica de Lovaina. El nuevo Presidente del EISS nos dirige una carta con tal motivo:

Dear EISS-members,

It is with pleasure that I contact you to remind you of some of our initiatives.

First the EISS Conference 2014 is organised this year in Leuven on the 9th and 10th of October on the theme ‘Social integration through social security: policies, outcomes and rights’. The Conference is a celebration of the work of prof. Berghman who is stepping down as president of the EISS and is retiring as professor of the KU Leuven.

Early registrations for the conference are still possible until the 1st of July 2014. More information can be found on our webpage:

Secondly I take the opportunity to ask researchers interested in sharing their work in the field of social security and social protection to apply for the Young Researchers’ Forum which takes place during the EISS 2014 Conference in Leuven. Applications are possible until the 1st of July 2014. More information:

Thirdly we wish to inform you on the Executive Summer School in Social Security 2014 organised by the Faculty of Law of the KU Leuven from the 25th of August until the 9th of September 2014.  This Summer School offers participants a crash course in social security.  It is a recognised postgraduate programme which can be followed independently.

The Summer School is also an integrated part of the advanced master programme Master of European Social Security also organised at the KU Leuven. This programme covers the area of social security in its broadest sense, including cash benefit schemes, pensions and health care systems. It is a one-year Master’s programme of 60 ECTS.

The Master can be followed either in a ‘practice-oriented track’ or ‘research track’. The ‘practice-oriented track’ is intended for students who which to have a more hands-on experience in social security whereby participants amongst others take on a three month full time internship. The ‘research track’ is for those students who which to work on their research capacities, they have to write an advanced research proposal and follow an individual programme of methodological courses.

More information on both the Executive Summer School and Master of European Social Security can be found on or in the attached leaflet. The deadline for application has been extended to the 1st of July 2014.

Yours sincerely,


Prof. Paul Schoukens

Secretary general of the EISS
