|Цели и задачи||
The Pension Research Council of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania is an organization committed to generating debate on key policy issues affecting pensions and other employee benefits. The Pension Research Council sponsors interdisciplinary research on the entire range of pri-vate pension and social security programs, as well as related benefit plans in the United States and around the world. Council projects are motivated by a need to address the long-term issues that underlie contemporary concerns and seek to broaden public understanding of these complex arrangements through research into their social, economic, legal,actuarial, and financial foundations of privately and publicly-provided benefits. Members of the Council's Board, appointed by the Dean of the Wharton School, are leaders in the employee benefits field.
Executive Director: Dr. Olivia S. Mitchell, International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans Professor of Insurance and Risk Management
The Pension Research Council hosts annual conferences, sponsors individual projects, and publishes reports from these activities.
Conferences are presented by Pension Research Council members who propose a topic of timely interest to the Advisory Board. Recent conferences have addressed reasons for and consequences of the changing mix of defined contribution and defined benefit pensions, and methods to improve international pension security. At these conferences, all Members have an opportunity to chart new research directions and to offer commentary on the Council's activities.
The Pension Research Council also offers limited funding to help bring high-quality research projects to fruition. Proposals from academics and other scholars are reviewed on an ongoing basis by the Advisory Board.
