RCLR is an initiative of the Amsterdam School of Economics of the University of Amsterdam (ASE) and NN Group (NN). Both parties anticipate that the RCLR will enable them to gain a better understanding of the financial and social consequences of longer lifespans and contribute to the public debate by raising people’s awareness.
The partnership between ASE and NN involves a financial contribution from the insurer, initially for a period of five years. In addition, the researchers can make use of unique, anonymised data from NN. This enables them to develop new techniques to analyse these kinds of datasets. Moreover, the collaboration ensures that the new centre’s research can focus both on scientific results and on the resulting socially relevant applications.
