The Erasmus University Rotterdam is committed to the continuing internationalisation of its activities. In 1990 the tax departments of the university’s School of Economics and School of Law decided to work together in pursuit of this goal and, on 28 March 1990, set up the European Fiscal Studies Foundation.
The foundation’s objects, as set out in Article 2 of its bye-laws, are:
To promote and pursue academic education and research exploring the implications of international law, specifically EU law, for national tax systems, and furthermore to do everything pertaining, relating or conducive to this aim, all in the widest sense of the word.
The foundation seeks to achieve its aims by:
a) Providing post-master’s programmes in:
- International and European Tax Law (Dutch)
- Indirect Taxation (Dutch)
- EU Customs Law (English)
b) Promoting and performing academic research, including contract research
c) Publishing academic publications
d) Organising academic symposia, conferences and lectures.
