Two awards presented at the 45th EGRIE Seminar

During the 45th annual seminar of the European Group of Risk and Insurance Economists (EGRIE), two awards sponsored by the SCOR Corporate Foundation for Science and the SCOR group were presented.


The two prizes are sponsored by the SCOR Foundation for Science and the SCOR group:

  • The SCOR-EGRIE Young Economist Best Paper Award1 was presented to Wanda Mimra and Christian Waibel of ETH Zurich, and Janina Nemitz of University of Zurich for their article titled “Voluntary Pooling of Genetic Risk: A Health Insurance Experiment”.


Both awards are organized under the aegis of the “Risk Markets and Value Creation” Chair, which brings together the Toulouse School of Economics and the Risk Foundation and is financed by the SCOR Foundation for Science.
