Netspar Brief

The Netspar Brief is intended to bring research to the attention of a wide range of professionals, policy makers and scientists, engaged in aging and pensions. The Briefs present research in an accessible manner, with focus on analysis and interpretation. This way, it provides building blocks for a well-informed pension debate in The Netherlands. The Netspar Briefs are only available in Dutch. For our English speaking fellows, an English summary is provided.
