The mission of the Pension Research Centre (PeRCent) is to create interest and knowledge about pension issues and through research, teaching and intermediation to contribute to the development of the pension system in Denmark. The activities of PeRCent are funded jointly in cooperation between CBS and partners from the pension sector in Denmark.
A key objective of the Pension Research Centre (PeRCent) is to make high-quality contributions in the pension research area, through publications in books and leading scientific journals in economics and finance. International research collaboration, including visitor and joint research programmes, is an important key to obtain high research standards. PeRCent therefore stimulate these activities by having an active conference, workshop and seminar programme with a strong international orientation. Moreover, through a regular intake of PhD students and postdocs, the centre will contribute to educate the next generation of researchers.
While research is the cornerstone of PeRCent’s activities, the centre should also be judged on its ability to contribute to a qualified debate on pension policies in Denmark and internationally. In fact, by collaborating with government departments and agencies, pension funds and insurance companies, domestic and international organisations etc., PeRCent seeks to obtain impact of its research on policy and practice.
