Gesellschaft für Versicherungswissenschaf (GVG)
The GVG's international activities are an extension of our contribution to the social policy discussion in Germany. Conferences and workshops offer our partners both inside and outside the European Union a forum for exchanging ideas and sharing experience within the context of the international social policy debate.
behalf of German and foreign ministries and international organisations we advise governments, social security institutions and other clients on social security issues.
Our projects offer support at a number of different levels. We offer consultation on fundamental reorientation processes in the social security sector, we give practical support in the drafting of legislation, we provide longer-term consultation and support for the administrative reorganisation of social security systems and institution building and we design training courses for specialist staff. Evaluation and assessment of social policy measures is also part of our work. The GVG not only carries out projects but is also involved in the awarding of contracts and co-ordination of projects.
