Sessional Research Programme and knowledge exchange

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries' (IFoA's) Sessional Research Programme is a high quality forum that disseminates research and promotes involvement and discussion from members and other stakeholders

Our Sessional Research Programme provides our members and other stakeholders the opportunity to present and discuss research which advances actuarial science and complements the objectives of the IFoA. If you have an idea for a sessional meeting or would like to present your research please read Guidance for researchers.

Knowledge exchange

Our Sessional Research Programme also includes seminar series and our Spring and Autumn Lectures. The IFoA works with members and other stakeholders to identify and raise awareness of forthcoming policy issues that are relevant to actuaries and the IFoA and of public interest. Seminars which cover such issues may be included in the programme.

Our Spring and Autumn Lectures provide the opportunity to hear from a diverse range of eminent speakers on current subjects of public interest. The broad range of topics covered reflects our aim to nurture thought leadership and knowledge exchange.
