Event: PeRCent Annual Conference 2016

  On June 21, 2016, I co-organized (with Jesper Rangvid) PeRCent’s second annual conference at CBS, entitled "Pension Systems in an Era of Uncertainty". The conference featured five academic presentations, including talks by top US and UK economists, Laurence J. Kotlikoff and Nicholas Barr, respectively. It also had two roundtable discussions as well as a dinner event with a keynote speech by Lars Rohde, chairman of the Board of Governors of Danmarks Nationalbank.  More than 150 people participated in the event, including researchers from universities and research institutions; practitioners from the pension industry, government agencies, central banks, think-tanks, etc. There were participants from many different countries, and not least: several students with an interest in the topics. So a truly international event on an important, topical issue.   You can read more about the conference here. A selection of photos from the event can be found here as well as a photo collage here. A record of other conferences I have organized recently can be seen here.
