Seminar in Insurance and Economics

The Seminar in Insurance and Economics is organized by the Section for Insurance and Economics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences. It aims to promote the dissemination of research in the mathematics of life insurance and non-life insurance, mathematical finance, operations research, applied probability, and data-driven applications within insurance and economics. 

The seminar is targeted academics, practitioners, and graduate students alike. All are welcome to attend. For further information, please contact the organizers: Christian Furrer and Mogens Bladt.
