Conference on Saving and Pension Finance in Europe, August 29, 2022

On August 29, 2022 the “Conference on Saving and Pension Finance” took place at the University of Liechtenstein. We are very proud to have hosted this conference as several impactful papers were presented by a selected handful of researches from high ranking universities from all over Europe (e.g. Goethe University Frankfurt, Maastricht University, Ravensburg-Weingarten University of Applied Sciences, University of Mannheim, University of Technology Chemnitz, University of Konstanz, University of St. Gallen or Warsaw School of Economics). The interesting conference programme also attracted conference participants from practice. Naturally, the project team took the chance and tasked Dr. Sebastian Stöckl with presenting our online courses as well as the accompanying software applications while Dr. Aicha Kharazi presented the project paper with the title “On the Saving Behavior of European Households”. After a busy day with many interesting discussions and insights all participants gathered for some well-deserved drinks and delicious food at the closing conference dinner.
