Over het pensioenseminar
The Pension Seminar is organized annually at Maastricht University. The seminar started in 2012.
The seminar was always based on a theme, which allowed an interdisciplinary approach. Chosen themes are aging, risk awareness, changing labor market, multi pension pillars, ‘short-time risk’, tax impact and side effects. The seminar has developed into a personal view on current pension themes and is visited by pension professionals with various backgrounds. The seminar takes place in the Statenzaal of Maastricht University, an inspiring environment for a dialogue or a debate on current pension topics.
The aim of the seminar is to offer a high-quality program with an opinion-oriented character with an eye for developments and new trends in the pension world.
We try to build a bridge between research, practice and policy. With insights that give rise to and invite to pro-active practice and possible adaption of policy, possibly also confirmation of current policy, but also provision of new input for follow-up steps.
Pension Seminar Maastricht 2018: a new design
From Pension Seminar 2018 we will choose a new line and focus on 'Europe' as a theme for the coming years. Thoughts behind this new theme is that the Dutch pension domain is not an isolated policy area but is increasingly influenced by external (outside the pension domain) developments. Examples of relevant policy areas are monetary policy, the labor market, market organization, taxation etc. For this reason, we have to take account of developments and trends outside the Netherlands, both with regard to 'Europe' and what is happening in other countries.
We have mentioned the theme 'Outside in'. With the developments and insights from outside the Netherlands, we want to see what the possible impact is on relevant policy areas and therefore on pensions in the Netherlands.
What can we learn from it, what are the opportunities and what should we be vigilant about?
This theme will always be filled in from another policy area in the coming years.
With the theme 'Outside In' we want to create a greater awareness and (future) action perspective; seen from the European field and for the benefit of the Dutch pension domain.
Pension Seminar 2018 is the kick-off on this new theme, providing insights into pension-related policy areas such as the labor market, capital market, monetary policy and market organization. In the following years, in-depth studies will be made in these areas to give more insight into what is happening to us, the Netherlands. In this way we try to create more openness, so that we can look at our pension with a broader perspective and make well-founded choices.
