Netspar is a network organization made up of partners from the academic world and the pension industry, including government agencies, regulatory agencies, and the social partners (employers and employees). In addition to financial contributions, Netspar partners more particularly contribute research input and are actively involved in disseminating knowledge. Partners also have the option of participating in the Netspar TIAS Academy Pension Innovation education program.
Professional Input Essential to Relevant Research
The partners play an important role in setting the research agenda (what are the relevant issues of tomorrow) and research priorities. They are represented through positions on the Foundation Board and Partner Research Council. Partners can also join the Editorial Board, where academics and professionals work together to manage the publication of industry-specific papers.
Partners commit to membership for a period of four years, based on a jointly prepared Action Plan. Most of our partners have been part of the network since it was first established in 2005. Partners recognize and value the academic independence of Netspar and of the research and publications it produces.
