Call for proposal for support for social protection reforms EaSI - VP/2014/006 Closed!


Social protection systems in the EU differ significantly in the level, composition and type of spending, their sources of financing, and the outcomes they achieve. For instance, Member States do not place the same emphasis on different functions of social protection, different types of benefits (cash transfers and in-kind benefits, means-tested versus universal schemes), and use different methods for financing social protection.


Projects are expected to generate knowledge and evidence that help steer national reforms, either by facilitating the access to expertise from other Member States and/or international organisations, or by obtaining empirical evidence needed for international comparisons and mutual learning. The focus should be in particular on major challenges that have been, or might become, the subject of country-specific recommendations, as well as reforms that could strengthen the social investment dimension of social protection schemes.
Specific task in order to:
  • access experience and expertise from other countries and international organisations
  • obtain empirical evidence needed for international comparisons and mutual learning.
