Le Mans Université

IRA Partnership with the TDTE Chair


The Risk and Insurance Institute of Le Mans is part of the "International Economy of Longevity" network, initiated by Jean-Hervé Lorenzi, François-Xavier Albouy and Alain Villemeur. On 28 March 2018, the institute joined the Chair "Demographic Transitions, Economic Transitions".




15 French research centres in economics are mobilising to create a network for the exchange of research on the longevity and ageing of the population. They are supported by 5 institutions that support this initiative as corresponding members. This network demonstrates the richness and vitality of research in the economics of aging, which is equal to the challenges of demographic transition for the French economy. This network will soon be joined by foreign research centres and institutions and will thus position French research as a leader in "ageing economics".
