New Theme Projects: €1 Million Awarded for Three-year Research Projects
Following scientific validation by the Scientific Council and a positive recommendation from the Partner Research Council, the Netspar Board of Directors has awarded three applications for theme project grants of €250,000 each:
- Automated financial advice: quality, ethical and design challenges − Elisabeth Bruggen (UM)
- Health and labor market uncertainty over the lifecycle: The impact on households’ risk capacity and retirement income adequacy − Raun van Ooijen and Sandra Brouwer (UMCG)
- Collective investments for heterogeneous individuals − Peter Schotman and Paulo Rodrigues (UM) & Anne Balter and Nikolaus Schweizer (UvT)
The scheduled start date for the projects is January 1, 2022.
A total of ten proposals were submitted. Instituut Gak had already selected one of those proposals in August to receive a subsidy of €250,000, awarding it to Raymond Montizaan (UM) for “The role of pensions in career decisions”. Netspar is very pleased with this additional funding for pension and retirement research from Instituut Gak.
