Transforming European Pension Systems

Transforming European Pension Systems

Joint Conference CEPR-Netspar supported by fRDB

Call for papers

5-6 October 2007


The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and the Network for Studies on Aging and Retirement (NETSPAR) are jointly organizing a second conference on transforming European pension systems. Its principal objective is to promote research on the effect of the ageing population in Europe, and to bring together academics and practitioners in the field. For this second conference we primarily solicit submission of papers that use SHARE or other survey data, or focus on pension risk and longevity risk in European pension systems. Topics relevant to the conference thus include, but are not limited to:

  • Analyzing pension issues using survey data such as SHARE
  • How to deal with pension risk
  • Longevity risk and annuitization
  • Ageing and productivity

The deadline for paper submission is July 1st, 2007. Notification on acceptance will be before the beginning of August 2007. The programme committee consists of Tito Boeri (University of Bocconi and CEPR), Monika Bütler (University of St. Gallen and CEPR) and Kees Koedijk (Erasmus University Rotterdam, CEPR and Netspar).
