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 "Stay Connected: Globally Connected, Socially Isolated". Since a couple of years, globalisation has caused a deep, tight, world-wide. connection. The past two years, COVID-19 has changed the way people can connect with each other quite a bit and it has made trading routes and goods delivery more important than ever. Therefore, the VESTING Conference 2022 will focus on the use and influence of econometrics, operations research, and actuarial studies on the different types of connection.
