Mission Netspar, Network for Studies on Pensions, Aging and Retirement, started operations in 2005. It is a network connecting two main groups: pension practice and pension science. The first group consists of ministries, supervising agencies and other civil service institutions, pension funds, pension providers, insurance companies, banks, asset liability management companies. The second group consists of Dutch and non-Dutch pension researchers, and Dutch universities. Mission Netspar contributes to the ongoing improvement of financial products and facilities for the old age in the Netherlans and in Europe through network development, formulating and executing scientific research and knowledge transfer programs. Vision With this aim in mind, Netspar wants to secure sustainable pension and insurance systems that share risk equitably and efficiently. The network strives to set an example of how public and private parties in the service industry can work together with researchers in the social sciences in an efficient and mutually beneficial way to stimulate social innovation. Next to that, Netspar strives to stimulate the research and development capacity of the pension industry. Core values of Netspar The core values of Netspar are independence, accessibility for new entrants, and openness to dialogue and interaction between stakeholders. Netspar recognizes the importance of diverse types of knowledge, a wide range of disciplines, and methodological approaches. It does not support particular policy positions, but is instead dedicated to promoting a wider understanding of the economic and social implications of pensions and retirement. It strives to effectively disseminate unbiased research output among public policymakers, professionals and trustees in financial institutions, and the academic community.
