New research agenda Netspar NexT and Work Program 2019-2023
Developments such as the increasing (healthy) life expectancy, further flexibilisation of the labor market, growing personal responsibility for individuals, internationalization and digitization, raise new questions about the financing of the old age. The questions are also becoming increasingly complex. Thorough, policy-oriented research therefore remains relevant. In addition, the large, divergent interests make it necessary to place order in the pension debate so that this can be conducted as much as possible on the basis of facts.
This is and remains the mission of Netspar: contributing to a well-informed pension debate. With the income provision for retirement as the crux of our research.
Together with the partners – and based on evaluations by the Scientific Council, NWO and partners – a new research agenda and Action Plan have been developed and established. In the coming months, together with partners, ministries and financiers of scientific research, we will work hard to complete the financing of the four-year work program.
The research focuses on three broad themes: pension reform, life cycle planning and the influence of a society in transition on the financing of the old age.
