History of European Integration Research Society (HEIRS) is a postgraduate research network. Founded in the summer of 2004
by a group of doctoral students, it works as an open network for all researchers who wish to contribute to discussions on
European integration history within an informal and relaxed atmosphere. HEIRS has two main aims:
To foster the collaboration and interaction of postgraduate researchers across Europe with an interest in European integration history; and
To encourage postgraduate researchers to overcome the “splendid isolation” of research, achieved most notably by bringing researchers together
at our annual conferences. As part of our activities, we collaborate with a broad range of partners. We work closely with the Paris-based
network and are represented at meetings of the EU Liaison Commitee of Historians
Please check the Events tab above, which is regularly updated with information of upcoming events and information on the topic of European integration.
We are pleased to announce plans for the Tenth History of European Integration Research Society Annual Conference to take place at Maastricht University
on 5-6 June 2014. Please see the 'Conferences' tab above for the call for papers.
