The International Pension Research Association (IPRA) is a new international organisation established with the aim of improving the quality and impact of research on pensions and related ageing issues to optimise social and economic outcomes for an ageing world.
Its inaugural executive committee comprises representatives of the four founding organisations CEPAR (Australia), the Pension Research Council at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (USA), the Network for Studies on Pensions, Aging, and Retirement (Netspar) at Tilburg University (The Netherlands), and the OECD.
IPRA’s vision is to be the global voice of research in the fields of pensions, ageing and retirement.
IPRA’s mission is to improve the quality and impact of research on pensions and related ageing issues to optimise social and economic outcomes for an ageing world. Promoting and increasing research talent is a critical part of fulfilling this mission. Global and interdisciplinary networking among researchers is a key component of our approach, as are improving the accessibility of research to a broader audience, rewarding and supporting promising research talent and projects, and advocating for a greater role for pensions and ageing research in universities, public policy circles, and elsewhere.
IPRA’s values are to promote breadth, originality, and challenging thinking, so as to foster respectful collaboration and engage stakeholders, and, by example, to support integrity and good governance.
