Partnering on research

Our ARC programmes are intended to be ‘game changers’ for the world of actuarial science and the industries it supports. Industry, international and public policy relevance of ARC research programmes is ensured through partnering with others – in both commissioning and sponsoring programmes. If you would be interested in getting involved with any of the existing research programmes, or have identified your own research gaps that could be addressed through the ARC, please contact the ARC mailbox.

ARC research aims to achieve maximum impact through wide dissemination and application of its outputs. ARC partners are available to present at your conferences and events, or provide articles for your publications. Equally, your organisation has the opportunity to partner on ARC events and materials, raising awareness of your brand and your involvement in developing industry relevant research.
