AIDA Europe was established in 2007 as a non-profit organization with the aim of promoting, either directly or through its members, the development of insurance and related law. It attempts to achieve this, mainly through
- furtherance of the study and knowledge of international and national insurance law and of related matters as well as
- proposition of measures aiming at the harmonisation of insurance law or the means for resolution of insurance disputes.
- facilitation of exchange of academic knowhow between its Members or any other European organization dealing with insurance related matters, similar to those of AIDA Europe
- support of academic work in the field of insurance, e.g. through cooperation with universities or the sponsoring of academic research and papers.
AIDA Europe organizes conferences which offer a platform for an open and solution minded dialogue on key developments in the area of insurance, reinsurance and related law also supporting its members in their respective endeavours. Conferences are open to all stakeholders and are indeed attracting representatives from all areas such as the insurance sector, academia, private practice, regulatory authorities or the law making. AIDA Europe also maintains a keen focus on supporting the development of young academic talents by sponsoring academic work and by inviting young academics to its conferences.
AIDA Europe Conferences represent a unique platform as they are also combined with the working meetings of the AIDA Working Parties. Click here for details of Working Parties
The inaugural conference of AIDA Europe was held in Hamburg in May 2008 with the most recent conferences having taken place in Copenhagen 2015 and Vienna 2016. The level of participation at the conferences reflects the interest of the delegates for the unique participative format arranged by AIDA Europe. Conferences are structured to accommodate some 250 delegates in order to retain a suitable size. Reports of these conferences can be found under "Past Events".
AIDA Europe is grateful for the annual sponsorship of the French Federation of Insurance Societies (FFSA) and the Deutscher Verein fur Versicherungswissenschaft (DVfVW) as well as any other sponsors supporting individual events.
