ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The VESTING Conference is an annual event for students of the studies Econometrics, Operations Research and Actuarial Studies (EOR(AS)) at the University of Groningen. Every year, around 130 students are inspired by the participating companies and speakers.
On this one-day event, several speakers will come to tell about their experiences, applications or views on this year's theme. Along with this there is a case round in which several interesting companies will show students some applications in the field of econometrics, operations research or actuarial studies. Of course there will be plenty of time to socialize and connect with the participating students and speakers/companies. At the end of the day, students have the opportunity to participate in the closing dinner.
THIS YEAR'S THEME
This year’s theme of the VESTING Conference is ‘Roaring 20’s 2.0: Old Problems, New Solutions’. The past year was unprecedented in many ways. Whereas the COVID-19 virus obviously caused a large crisis, it also gave rise to many innovative ideas. Hence fittingly, we will focus on the application of econometrics, operations research and actuarial studies on the innovative solutions during and after the crisis.
