The Pensions Research Network, which draws together research within the field of pensions, retirement behaviour, savings and ageing from across the various academic disciplines, held its fifth successful workshop on Friday 19 February 2010. Guest speakers included Professor James Banks (University College London/ Institute of Fiscal Studies), Daniela Silcock and John Adams (Pensions Policy Institute) and Dr David McCarthy (Imperial College, London).
The workshops, held within Westminster Business School, provide a cross-disciplinary network and forum for exchange of information, discussion and debate. Face-to-face network meetings on a three monthly basis are organized giving members and other interested parties the opportunity to meet, present, discuss and collaborate on research projects. PhD research students interested in the subject areas are encouraged to become members and contribute to the network.
