The first conference of the Amsterdam School of Economics' (ASE) Research Centre for Longevity Risk (RCLR) was held on 28 June in Amsterdam. The event 'Pandemic Scenarios – Number Crunching and Communication Strategies' featured 4 speakers. Each speaker gave insights into challenges experienced by experts in communicating accurate information.

Their excellent presentations given from theire respective medical, actuarial and statistical perspectives particularly looked at ways of providing this information in a timely manner to inform policymakers and engage the public in making decisions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Meeting future challenges

The RCLR provided a forum for a wide variety of perspectives to be heard and discussed by inviting stakeholders with different backgrounds such as medical professionals, actuaries, and business leaders. The new insights generated can be used in strategies to respond to similar challenges in the future. More details about the speakers and their presentations can be found on the conference webpage.
