ISSA Academy workshops

Social security managers and experts looking for hands-on support on important issues they face in their day-to-day practice should participate in the ISSA Academy workshops.

During two and half days or three days, participants will discuss challenges and discover problem-solving strategies based on the ISSA Guidelines under the supervision of an expert. Together with peers from other social security institutions in the region, they will identify solutions tailored to their specific organizational challenges and needs.

ISSA Academy workshops are offered exclusively to ISSA members without a registration fee.
