2021 | Annual Actuarial Awards
Each year, the SCOR Foundation holds the French Actuarial Awards in Paris in partnership with the French Institute of Actuaries
The Foundation places great importance on the development of actuarial science and risk management, and each year rewards the best actuarial diploma dissertation submitted by a French, Belgian or Swiss institution (Prix des Jeunes Actuaires) as well as the best doctoral thesis on topics relating to an economic, financial or insurance issue linked to risk management (Prix des Jeunes Docteurs).
