Research workshop on microinsurance

7 December 2012 - University of Mannheim - L7 3-5, Room PO 031

The Microinsurance Workshop is a platform for researchers who work on various questions related to microinsurance. Researchers, who use either theoretical or empirical methods, including survey studies or experimental studies such as randomised control trials, are highly welcome to join this platform.

The workshop also aims at covering a wide variety of research questions which, for example, help to explain demand and supply of microinsurance products, record the outreach of insurance coverage, or improve product design and pricing approaches.
The Microinsurance Workshop is open to senior as well as junior researchers and in particular intends to give PhD students the opportunity to discuss their research ideas together with people experienced in this field of research.
