The Pensions, Retirement and Ageing Seminar Series is jointly hosted by CEPAR and the School of Risk & Actuarial Studies at UNSW Sydney.

It takes place on a Monday from 12-1pm at UNSW Kensington Campus, in Law Library 111, Law Building, and provides an excellent opportunity to network with pensions and superannuation experts from Australia and overseas. This is an interdisciplinary group with backgrounds in economics, actuarial studies, finance, psychology, law, accounting, demography, marketing, medicine and related fields. We invite attendance of participants from other universities as well as from industry and government who are interested in both theoretical and applied research on pensions, retirement and ageing.

We also welcome presenters who are early career academics or practitioners. Please contact Inka Eberhardt if you are interested in presenting or want to be added to the Pensions, Retirement and Ageing Seminar Series mailing list.

There is no charge to attend these seminars.
