The AFIR-ERM Section of the International Actuarial Association (IAA) has as its primary objective the promotion of actuarial research in enterprise risk management and particularly financial risk fields, to push forward the boundaries of actuarial knowledge and to promote and facilitate an international exchange of views, advice, research and practical information among actuaries and other experts involved in these fields. The AFIR-ERM Section is thus pleased to announce research grants to fund new original research leading to a research paper on innovations in this field in general and particularly on digital innovation in actuarial science.
Proposal submissions are due by February 1, 2024 and must be submitted in the English language. Authors should submit proposals, including the title, a short description of the topic(s) to be addressed, the approach that will be taken (e.g. literature search, model, etc.), emphasizing issues that require special consideration and a statement that the research has not been published and is not being considered for publication at the moment of submission. At least one of the authors has to be a member of the AFIR-ERM Section prior to the date of the submission. Full details of the Call for Research and submission guidelines are available here.
Sincerely, Prof. Dr. Alexander Bohnert, Chair AFIR-ERM Section
