About EFS

The Erasmus University Rotterdam is committed to the continuing internationalisation of its activities.
EFS (European Fiscal Studies Foundation) was set up in March 1990 following the decision by the tax departments of the university’s School of Economics and School of Law to work together in pursuit of this aim.

The objects of EFS, as set out in Article 2 of its bylaws, 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.

EFS seeks to achieve its aims by:

a) Providing post-master programmes, top-level seminars and summer courses in:

  • International and European Tax Law
  • Indirect Taxation
  • EU Customs Law

b) Promoting and performing academic research, including contract research

c) Publishing academic publications

d) Organising academic symposiums, conferences and lectures.
